Can Local Chile Peppers Tell Us About Global Climate Change?
EL PASO - You may be used to eating chile peppers, but scientists are starting to use them to learn more about global climate change.
Next Tuesday, Dr. Gary Paul Nabhan will be speaking on the UTEP campus about chili peppers and climate change. Nabhan co-wrote a book, Chasing Chiles: Hot Spots Along The Pepper Trail, that introduces us to pepper farmers who are learning a lot about climate change.
Nabhan will speak at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 22, in Room 116 of the Undergraduate Learning Center on The University of Texas at El Paso campus. A reception and book signing will follow at the Centennial Museum and Chihuahuan Desert Gardens, located at the corner of University Avenue and Wiggins Road on the UTEP campus.
