Global Warming Conference at UNCW

A Conference at UNCW was aimed at informing the public about global warming. Researchers say as the temperatures rise, so do the chances of hurricanes. We've just started hurricane season and named storms are on residents' minds. "This area seems to be very dependent on weather," Wilmington resident Maryann Egerter said. Conference organizers say the global warming discussion is timely. "The trends are not good. That's the key thing to remember its not going to get nicer. A warming world is going to make things tougher for us on the coast," Key note speaker and Professor, Dr. Larry Cahoon said. Scientists attending the conference believe there are ways to slow the process...and they say it starts with you. "Energy efficiency would be the first place to start. I mean, who likes paying a high power bill?" Dr. Cahoon said. The global warming conference continues tomorrow at 9 in the morning at the Warwick Center at UNCW.
