Roger Boe, Idaho Climate Action Network member, retired pediatrician and medical consultant, will present “Beyond an Inconvenient Truth,” Monday, Nov. 19, 7:30 p.m. at the United Methodist Church, 200 N. 15th Ave. The public is invited and encouraged to attend.
Boe originally prepared and presented this topic for New Knowledge Adventures. Affiliated with Idaho State University, New Knowledge Adventures is a member-directed organization for adults to gain knowledge and explore new ideas in an informal, noncompetitive environment. Boe’s PowerPoint presentation takes the learner beyond the story presented in Al Gore’s Academy Award winning film, “An Inconvenient Truth.” He begins with “why the film inspires us,” examines the science of global warming, and explores the findings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Boe noted that fourth report for 2007 from IPCC will be published this month and he hopes to incorporate new information in his presentation. He based much of his research on information from the Union of Concerned Scientists, IPCC reports, and other resources cited in Gore’s film.
