Meeting Room ABC

Prof. Anthony Broccoli, co-director of Rutgers Climate Institute, will discuss the nature of changes in climate throughout Earth’s history and their causes.

Prior to the rise of civilization, the causes of climate change were exclusively natural. Some have postulated that human impacts on climate may have begun with the advent of agriculture about 10,000 years ago, but there is no doubt that greenhouse gas emissions are now the dominant driver of climate change and will remain so for the foreseeable future.  We will discuss the nature of past changes in climate and their causes, and what such changes imply for the future.

Presented by Dr. Anthony Broccoli, Professor and Chair in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences, and Co-Director of the Rutgers Climate Institute.
