Description:

Lexington Global Warming Action Coalition (LexGWAC) to present an evening with NASA Climate Scientist Dr. James Hansen together with author Dr. Mark Bowen,
speaking about the most recent findings on global warming and government
attempts at censorship.

He will be joined by local author Mark Bowen, who wrote the newly released
book “Censoring Science: Inside the Political Attack on Dr. James Hansen and
the Truth of Global Warming.”

Dr. Hansen will speak about his latest findings and the pressing need to
reduce greenhouse gas emissions within the next couple of years or face the
consequences of a very different climate. Hansen’s efforts to speak openly
about the importance of reducing greenhouse gases was impeded by political
appointees at NASA, who attempted to censor or alter Hansen’s reports and
writings.

Bowen’s book, “Censoring Science” will be available for sale and signing
after the talk.
