BELMAR, NJ — Two Monmouth University science professors will present a talk on the impact of climate change tomorrow, December 1 at the Belmar Public Library.
Monmouth adjunct faculty members Catherine Brady and Michael Tarullo will take a look at the earth’s paleoclimates — changes in climate that have occurred over its geological past — as well as provide an explanation of climate.
The free program will begin at 10 a.m. at the main library, located at 517 10th Avenue.
“We will also be discussing what has caused changes to our current climate and some anticipated impacts of climate change,” said Brady, who holds dual master’s degree in marine biology and coastal zone management.
While Brady’s possesses a strong background in marine species conservation, co-presenter Tarullo will bring his expertise as a geologist to their timely presentation, which comes on the heels of the release of the latest federal government report on climate change.
U.S. Global Change Research Program’s Fourth National Climate Assessment outlines its case on how a changing climate adversely affects the environment, economy, health and infrastructure systems, including water, energy and transportation.
Although Saturday’s talk will not specifically address those findings, the general causes and consequences of climate change will be discussed, Brady said.

Belmar Public Library has two locations: its main building at 517 10th Avenue on the corner of E Street, and the library annex at 503 Seventh Avenue.
