HAYWARD -- A common-sense approach to addressing global warming will be discussed by an environmental scientist Friday.
UC Berkeley professor John Harte will talk about "Solving the Climate Crisis," before the Hayward Demos Democratic Club. The lecture is open to the public.
Harte will give an update of a message he delivered to the Demos in 2008, when he said that scientific research had shown unequivocally that global warming is human-made and that there needs to be a shift from fossil fuels.
The research scientist and his work have been featured in Mother Jones, on Bill Moyers' television show "Now" and on the PBS Newshour. He has written several books, including "Cool the Earth, Save the Economy: Solving the Climate Crisis Is Easy," which he co-wrote with his wife, Mary Ellen Harte, a biologist.
The talk begins at 7 p.m. at Westminster Hills Outreach Center, 27287 Patrick Ave.
