ABOUT THE MEETING:  Our speaker this month, Dr. Marwan Nusair, will give a fact based, analytical presentation on the hard science of global warming. He will discuss, based on scientific data, why some scientists think the earth is warming and why other scientists think the earth is actually cooling. Dr. Nusair is a member of the Cincinnati IEEE section and has a keen interest in the way climatology data has been presented to make the case for global warming.
