A free public dialogue on Global Warming as a Crisis of Geological Proportions: Welcome to the Anthropocene with Raymond T. Pierrehumbert, Louis Block professor in Geophysical Sciences, University of Chicago, will be held at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 4, at the Aspen Center for Physics, Sixth and Gillespie in Aspen.Geologists divide past time up into epochs delineated by major events such as extinctions, massive climate changes and changes in the composition of the atmosphere. Until recently, humanity has been living in the Holocene, the period of generally mild and steady climate beginning at the end of the last ice age and continuing up to the dawn of the industrial age. Professor Pierrehumbert argues that the Holocene has ended as a result of human influence on climate, global chemical cycles and worldwide ecosystems. He will explore the implications for the future of humanity and other species with which we share the planet.For more information, call 925-2585 or visit
