We will be posting videos from our archive gradually, so check the Videos page (see navigation bar, above) on this site frequently for updates.
Please note that some events and lectures will not be available. For example, Dr. Jodi Magness could not allow filming because she was announcing an archealogical discovery that had not yet been published. Occasionally, our contract with a lecturer (Dr. Amy-Jill Levine is an example) will not allow us to post full videos.
Here is the video of our most recent event, NASA’s Dr. Bruce Wielicki on Climate Change:

October 2, 2016: Climate Change:What’s Going On?
2:00 pm First Presbyterian Church. Dr. Bruce Wielicki, NASA scientist, will present a view from 40 years of climate research to examine what we know and don’t know about climate change. How do we tell the difference between climate natural variability and human forced changes? How do we find accurate information in the seeming chaos of the internet articles on this topic? What are likely outcomes and risks, including for North Carolina? What are the uncertainties about those risks and what causes them? What can we do at the personal level that makes good climate and economic sense?
Rothermel events are always free and open to the public.
