How to Head Off the Most Serious Consequences
Tuesday, May 22nd at 7:00 p.m.
After receiving his doctorate in Chemistry at MIT, Professor Thomas Flood spent most of his forty years at USC conducting research on how metal-containing molecules react with hydrocarbons. The work had direct relevance to fossil fuels and led to his interest in energy sources and the effects of their use on the environment and on climate. Professor Flood has presented courses at USC on atmospheric chemistry and pollution, conventional and renewable energy sources, and global warming and climate change. He has participated in Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project Leadership Training program, the Citizens Climate Lobby, the Sierra Club, and the Union of Concerned Scientists. Since retiring in 2012, he has given lectures on climate change, renewable energy and sustainable transportation for UCLA Extension, the Emeriti College at USC, and for various community organizations in the greater LA area.
It is very clear that if we ignore the global warming, it will likely lead to wide-ranging destructive and expensive consequences. Learn more when Crowell Library presents Professor Thomas Flood on Tuesday, May 22 at 7:00 p.m. in the Barth Community Room.
