Cornell University is sponsoring the Sustainable Earth, Energy, and  
Environmental Systems (SEEES) speaker series for Fall 2010, featuring  
all new speakers. The theme for this year is: the interwoven challenge  
of energy, climate, and the environment in the human and natural  
world. The series is designed especially for college freshmen and  
sophomores, but we are extending the invitation to all undergraduates  
at Cornell and Ithaca College, local high school students, and the  
greater Ithaca community. No registration is required. The series is  
co-sponsored by the Cornell Department of Earth and Atmospheric  
Sciences and the Cornell Center for a Sustainable Future.

The series meets Monday nights, every other week, 7:30-8:45pm in 101  
Phillips Hall on the Cornell Campus (TCAT #10, Sage Hall bus stop),  
and starts on Monday August 30th.
