The University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley continues its 2009-2010 Scholars Series program focusing on sustainability issues, with a presentation by Gil Reavill titled "Antarctica: Climate Change and Preserving the Last Pristine Wilderness on Earth." Reavill, an author, screenwriter and ghostwriter, has published numerous books, including his collaboration with polar traveler Robert Swan, "Antarctica 2041." His presentation begins at noon in Perry Hall, inside the campus’ new Communication Arts Center on Monday, November 16.
Reavill explained in advance of his presentation, "Present-day fossil-fuel-based industrial civilization is burning the candle at both ends, burning the planet at both Poles. The effects of climate change show up disproportionately in the environmentally fragile polar regions. My talk focuses on the beauty and challenge of the Antarctic wilderness, as well as on the impact global warming has upon the most spectacular and remote landscape on earth."
Reavill’s presentation is free and open to the public with unreserved seating. Free parking is available on the west side of the campus.
