Summers are getting hotter. Flooding events are becoming more extreme. And, more recently, Winter Storm Uri brought snow and record-breaking freezing temperatures to Texas. It’s no secret that climate change is affecting every aspect of our planet, but how much do we really know and what does the science say?

Join the Meadows Center’s Founder and Book Series Editor, Dr. Andy Sansom in welcoming the series’ latest author, Dr. Gerald North for a Virtual Discussion and Q&A Session on Tuesday, April 20, 2021.

The event will begin with a moderated discussion between Meadows Center Executive Director, Dr. Robert E. Mace, and Dr. North followed by a live Q&A session with participants. The event is free and open to the public. Registration is required online at

In a career spanning four decades, Gerald R. North contributed groundbreaking research that continues to shape the modern field of climate science. However, the route he has taken was full of surprising twists and turns. In The Rise of Climate Science, North recounts in detail his life in the vanguard of modern climate science. He offers an insider look at the academic research and government initiatives around global warming and what that means for the planet.

The Rise of Climate Science is the latest addition to the Kathie and Ed Cox Jr. Books on Conservation Leadership Series, published by Texas A&M University Press and sponsored by the Meadows Center.
