February’s Science by the Glass event will focus on what’s not socially acceptable.

The Texas Tech University Climate Science Center's monthly Science by the Glass discussion for February will focus on why climate change is a controversial topic.

Clay and Sarah Pope, experts from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Southern Plains Climate Hub, will lead the discussion “The Climate Change Caucus: Money, Politics and Religion. A conversation you shouldn't have in mixed company.”

The discussion starts at 6 p.m. Tuesday (Feb. 9) at Fox & Hound Sports Tavern, 4210 82nd St.

Science by the Glass events are informal monthly discussions that bring together members of the community with Texas Tech faculty and students to discuss topics related to science, climate and society. They are open to the public and admission is free.
