Global Warming Expert to Lecture at Hopkins

Michael MacCracken, executive director of the National Assessment Coordination Office of the U.S. Global Change Research Program, will give a lecture, "Global Warming: Myth or Threat?" at noon on Wednesday, Nov. 10, in Shriver Hall on The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles Street in Baltimore.

MacCracken's talk will focus on the myths and realities of global warming as well as the combined research effort of 10 federal agencies to understand and improve predictions of climate change and greenhouse warming, ozone depletion, and the long-term impact of humans on the environment.

MacCracken holds a B.S. in engineering from Princeton University and a doctorate in applied science from the University of California. Prior to his work at the U.S. Global Change Research Program, he was chief scientist for the Hardware, Advanced Mathematics and Model Physics project at the Department of Energy. He also worked at the Livermore National Laboratory, where he led development of a San Francisco Bay Area air quality model used to develop the region's successful air quality control plan. He was inducted into the American Association for the Advancement of Science in January 1999.

This lecture is part of the Wednesday Noon Series presented by the Johns Hopkins University Office of Special Events. Admission is free. For further information, call the Office of Special Events at 410-516-7157.
