Freethinkers presentation  March 20

Fran Berman

Biosphere 2 has been, and continues to be, where science lives. From the communal experiment with the original groups of Biospherians, through Columbia University’s experiments with carbon dioxide, to the current Landscape Evolution Observatory of the University of Arizona, science has been performed in various configurations and methodologies.

Our guest speaker is Victor Lim, Jr., an Interpretive Specialist with the University of Arizona. He has an MBA from the Asian Institute of Management and an MPA from the JFK School of Government, Harvard University. Listen to his presentation and learn what the scientists at Biosphere 2 are doing to learn more about the causes and solutions to climate change. This is your chance to have some of your questions about climate change answered: Have humans caused it? What can we do about it? What if we don’t?

As our organizational charter states, we “believe in the responsible search for truth and meaning and in the application of reason and science to the understanding of the universe and the solving of human problems. We believe that tolerance, compassion, equity and civility should characterize the interaction among peace loving persons and organizations.” Information about SaddleBrooke Freethinkers, upcoming presentations and past programs is at To be added to the email list, please send your request and contact information to [email protected].
