Influences of Humans on Planet Earth: 7 Billion and Counting features brief research presentations, followed by a panel discussion on climate change modeling and regional air pollution issues.
The presentations will outline the problem of sustainability as it relates to population and affluence growth, with a look at the “big picture” of global population, energy consumption, and CO2 emissions. Professor Jaffe will connect these issues to his research on the sources and chemistry of pollutants and Professor Salathe will discuss the implications of these changes for our climate in the Pacific Northwest.
