CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Climate change is the defining historical challenge of this century, according to Sen. Rob Hogg. During his lecture at the University of Northern Iowa, Hogg will explore the significance of climate change and what Iowans can do to take action. Hogg's lecture will be held from 7 to 9 p.m., Monday, Sept. 23, in the Center for Energy & Environmental Education (CEEE) auditorium on the UNI campus.

"Smart, science-literate citizens take the reality and challenges of climate change, and what it means for Iowa, seriously," said Kamyar Enshayan, director of UNI's CEEE. "This event is intended to inspire discussion and action."

In addition to serving in the Iowa Senate, Hogg has published a book on climate change, "America's Climate Century."

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Enshayan at 319-273-7575 or kamyar.enshayan@uni.edu.
