Sunday afternoon, Don Lamb from the University of Chicago’s Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics visited S.H.O.P. to speak to local groups concerned about climate change and environmental degradation. Because of his political activity, Don was able to speak both to the science of global warming and the realpolitik of various energy alternatives. The audience, which included Illinois House Majority Leader Barbara Flynn Currie, listened to Don from a captivating two hours, with just a smattering of questions punctuating the talk. Special thanks to our good neighbor Jay Mulberry for planning the event and bringing it to S.H.O.P.!
