Scientist Dr. Liviu Popa-Simil will give a presentation on the ramifications of climate change titled “The Challenges of the Future – A Fork in the Road” based on his book of the same name.
The talk is part of the Hive Brown-bag Lunch Series that starts at about 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 21 at the Hive, 134 N.M. 4 in White Rock.
Dr. Popa-Simil’s presentation will begin at noon. The meeting is open to the public at no charge.
This is not a “doom and gloom” scenario and is based on data derived from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), which Popa-Simil believes to be a reputable and honest source.
His conclusions are his own educated predictions and are not associated with any advocacy group.
Dr. Popa-Simil sees dramatic weather changes that will likely affect core technologies and availability of electricity, raw materials, food and more.
It doesn’t matter if the stimulus is global warming, global dimming, volcano eruptions or earthquakes, the resulting economics will integrate all of these effects into an economic trend that affects all aspects of society.
He sees an emerging need for preparedness to deal with safety and the global economy. Dr. Popa-Simil will try to raise awareness of the future challenges that will be faced and the actions that will have to be taken in order to make civilization not only survive but thrive.
