Climate Change will hurt in the Checkbook: Kiefer to speak at S. Hall Kiwanis Luncheon

Climate Change will hurt in the Checkbook: Kiefer to speak at S. Hall Kiwanis Luncheon“Atmospheric Changes and Georgia Weather” will be the subject of a talk that Brenau Professor Dr. Rudi Kiefer is giving at the luncheon of the South Hall Kiwanis Club on Wednesday, May 16.

“Just like all the locations in the world won´t be affected the same way by climatic change, there are going to be significant differences across Georgia as well,” Kiefer said. “We´re not looking at horrible disasters, but the adjustments in the world´s atmosphere will mean an adjustment in our checkbooks as well. Some regions in Georgia will be paying more than others.”

Kiefer holds a doctorate in physical geography from the University of Georgia, and has published research on soil carbon dioxide, geochemistry, and acid rain in international scientific journals. His column “Weatherwise” is published every Sunday in the Times. His email is rkiefer@brenau.edu.
