Global Warming: A Science Perspective

Regardless of one’s perspective the effects of global warming are a quantifiable set of environmental results. That is why the SFU Dean of Science Office invited some of the world's leading scientists to present results of their research in the six-part series of talks, "Global Warming: A Science Perspective". 

The series is designed to speak to a general audience of undergraduate and graduate students, faculty from across the Faculty of Science and the University and interested members of the public. All talks will be streamed live at http://www.irmacs.sfu.ca/about/live-video and then archived below.
