The Lexington Global Warming Action Coalition (LexGWAC) will host a talk with Mark Bowen, author of "Censoring Science: Inside the Political Attack on Dr. James Hansen and the Truth of Global Warming." Bowen will be joined by Jim Hansen, Director of NASA'S Goddard Institute for Space Studies at Columbia University in New York City.

Over the past three years, LexGWAC's popular speaker series has brought prominent scientists and authors to Lexington to discuss climate change issues, and with the global warming crisis becoming more urgent by the day, it is timely that Dr. Hansen has agreed to speak about the pressing need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions within the next couple of years or face the possibility 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.

Mark Bowen's book, "Censoring Science" will be available for sale and signing after the talk.

An admission fee of $5 per person will be charged to help defray the cost of bringing top-level climate change researchers and policy-makers to this area. Seating will be limited, so early arrival is recommended.
