BTW... there's a history behind this event. The library offered to host it after receiving complaints about Dr. Rapp's climate change denial event last Thursday. Dr. Patzert then generously agreed to give his talk on short notice.
... and as notice is short, there's little time to get the word out, so do what you can to spread the news!!!
