The lack of disagreement about climate change caught guest speaker Howie Spero off guard. A crowd consisting of community members and about 20 students attended a presentation about climate change entitled “The Changing Seas” on March 22 in the Tahoe Center for Environmental Science building.
Event organizer Heather Segale, University of California, Davis Education and Outreach coordinator, introduced Spero, chairman of Geology at UC Davis.
“The whole national discussion on climate change has become politicized,” Spero said at the beginning of his speech. “We forget it’s not about politics, it’s about simply understanding the science that affects the Earth.”
