Zobitz on Climate Change with International Business Times

International Business Times consulted with several climate change researchers including Augsburg’s mathematics and environmental studies professor, John Zobitz.  He shares his insights into the recent record-breaking snowstorm in the Buffalo, New York area and why it’s been so cold and snowy in the U.S. in general this November.  Is it due to climate change/global warming?  That’s a controversial question but read the article and find out what Zobitz had to say along with the other researchers.

Native American Film Series

It’s been posted all over campus and online but here’s another reminder. The first screening of the Native American Film Series is tonight.  Yes, that’s right.  TONIGHT. The 2014-15 season will focus on environmental issues and climate change from the perspective of various indigenous groups.
Tonight’s event will feature Listening for the Rain: Indigenous Perspectives on Climate Change.  A discussion will follow after the screening with the filmmakers, Jeff Palmer (Kiowa), Filoteo Gomez Martinez (Ayuuk) and sociologist, Sonia Davila-Poblete.  Wish you had a little more information?  Well, then read about the filmmakers and check out the trailer.
