Downloadable Presentation

China and the U.S. have signed a treaty to reduce carbon emissions.

Take a look at some of the scientific reasons that led to this historic accord in a presentation by Benjamin Cash, a research scientist 
at the Center for Ocean-Land-Atmosphere Studies, who spoke at the Takoma Park Library in August.  He has generously agreed to make his presentation accessible on our website. (You'll need Powerpoint to view it.)
