UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Speaking to a standing-room-only crowd at Research Unplugged on April 11, Penn State scientist Richard Alley covered the terrain of global warming, from Antarctic penguins and glaciers to economic pundits and policymakers.

Centre County's Government and Education Access Network, C-NET, will broadcast his presentation, "Rising Seas, Warming Planet," on Channel 98 on Comcast cable system according to the following schedule:

Alley, who is Evan Pugh Professor of Geosciences, is well known for his prolific research and passion for teaching and public speaking. In recent years he hosted the PBS series "EARTH: The Operators' Manual" and authored a book of the same name. He is one of several Penn State earth scientists who are contributors to the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with Al Gore.

The C-NET broadcast includes both Alley's informal talk and the lively public question and answer segment that followed.

The series is made possible with the support of the Office of the Vice President for Research, the Office of University Relations and Schlow Centre Region Library.
