Internationally Renowned Climate Scientist Dr. James Hansen is Coming to Omaha!

Dr. James Hansen, the world's most famous climate scientist, is coming to Omaha to deliver a free public lecture Friday evening April 29th at the Mike and Josie Harper Center on the Creighton University campus at 602 North 20th Street at 7:00 p.m. titled, “Energy and Climate Change: How Can Justice Be Achieved for Young People?”
