World-renowned scientist, explorer, and conservationist Tim Flannery will speak about the latest information and science regarding global warming on Monday, March 5 at 7:30 p.m. in Montana State University's Strand Union ballrooms.
Flannery's most recent book, "The Weather Makers," was published in 2006 and it provides basic theories for current discussion on climate change and global warming. Flannery's book is currently at the center of the international conversation surrounding this topic. "The Weather Makers" has surpassed one million copies sold, making it one of the best selling books ever written about climate change.
Flannery was recently awarded the 2007 Australian of the Year, which is given to one citizen who is a role model for others, who inspire through their achievements, and who challenge Australians to make their own contribution to improving their native continent.
