Carolina Science Café
“GlobalClimate Change: A Primer” with Dr. Orrin Pilkey
Thursday, Feb. 2, 6 p.m.
Back Bar, Top of the Hill restaurant, Chapel Hill
Is climate change a real issue? How could it impact life in North Carolina?
Dr. Orrin Pilkey addresses these questions and more during Morehead Planetarium and Science Center’s Carolina Science Cafe, held at the Back Bar (Top of the Hill restaurant, Chapel Hill) on Feb. 2 at 6 p.m. The free program is open to the public.
Pilkey specializes in coastal geology, specifically barrier islands, and studies how climate change alters shorelines in North Carolina and across the world. He is James B. Duke Professor Emeritus of geology at DukeUniversity and director of theProgram for the Study of Developed Shorelines. His most recent book, “Global Climate Change: A Primer,” was published in August 2011 and expands on his ideas about climate change and coastlines.
February’s Carolina Science Cafe featuring Orrin Pilkey was made possible through Morehead’s partnerships with the North Carolina Coastal Federation and with Sigma Xi. Carolina Science Cafe is Morehead’s series ofmonthly programs featuring noted scientists and researchers, who discuss “in the news” science topics with cafe participants. Carolina Science Cafe welcomes participants who are unfamiliar with these science topics as well as participants who already have some knowledge.
