The Idaho Museum of Natural History will host a lecture titled “Global Warming: Natural and Anthropogenic Factors in Current Climate Change” on April 23 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in Room 204.

Martin Hackworth, senior lecturer in physics at Idaho State University, will offer a scientific view of both natural and manmade factors that influence climate, and the evidence for anthropogenic climate change. The presentation is free and open to the public.

Hackworth has been a senior lecturer at ISU since 1992. He teaches astronomy, engineering physics, weather and climate, and optics.

Hackworth’s talk is sponsored by IMNH, Portneuf Valley Audubon Society and ISU Student Action Volunteers for the Environment as part of Pocatello’s Earth Week celebration. The celebration will feature a series of events to raise environmental awareness.
