The Café Scientifique Youth Leadership Team from Los Alamos High School is hosting its February Café at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Bradbury Science Museum. Dr. Joyce Guzik will present “What if the Sun Stopped Shining?” and students will then be encouraged to engage in civil discourse and discuss what would life be like if the Earth cooled by 2-3 degrees Celsius as it did in the Little Ice Age.Café Scientifique is a program geared for high school students on topics that are of interest to them.  The program is free. Teens will have the opportunity to receive cash for car pooling, win door prizes and share in refreshments.The Café Scientifique Youth Leadership Team also plans to host a café at 7 p.m. Feb. 28 in the UNM-LA Lecture Hall to include discussion and debate about proposals to geoengineer the climate to slow or reverse the present trend in warming.International committees have been discussing ideas such as seeding the atmosphere with material that can reflect the sun’s energy back into space, rather than trap it as greenhouse gasses do. The Youth Leadership Team would like to emphasize that the cafés are designed so that they are of interest to all high school students. For information, access www.cafenm.org or contact Michelle Hall at 663-5365, hall@scieds.com.
