Water: Debate on Critical Issue in Science

A recent U.S. government report tells an unambiguous story: The planet is warming, climate change is driven primarily by people and it's already affecting Americans, through more frequent or intense heat waves, downpours and, in some regions, floods or droughts. Sigma Xi will focus on the critical issue of Water through discussions at 2014 Annual Meeting in Arizona.
