A few years ago there was an honors BS degree I think by a woman at Stony Brook University on the effects of global warming. Dr. Marburger, Ph.D., an astrophysicist, once president of that university, was or still is the controversial science adviser to President Bush. To summarize from memory it was thought Los Angeles might become quite cloudy and the northeast USA quite rainy, which I found threatening in light of the mountaintop mining tried to be forced in areas there and the suspension of riverine flooding rules for them. Dr. Marburger was president there quite a few years ago, Stony Brook U. has had a woman president for quite a number of years now, I just got a birthday card the other day, from Shirley Strum Kenny, President. April 11, 2007 is "The Stars of Stony Brook Gala" at Pier 60 at Chelsea Piers honoring famed paleontologist and faculty member, Richard Leakey to support the Turkana Basin Institute and University scholarships.
