As we wondered recently if spring would ever arrive, Dr. Beverly Younger gave an audience of over 100 students, staff, faculty, and community members at Governors State University, both the good news and the bad news about global warming.

With information and Power Point presentation taken from the Academy Award winning film, “An Inconvenient Truth,” Younger outlined both the causes of global warming and the dangers the world faces if it goes unchecked. Younger, a lecturer in the Department of Social Work at Governors State University, is a volunteer trainer with The Climate Project, a nonprofit organization begun by former Vice President Al Gore. The College of Health Professions and the GSU Biology Club sponsored the presentation.
