If you're as confused about this winter's weather as those tulip bulbs starting to peek out of your garden, you might want to check out “Climate Change in Our Back Yard,” a speaker series sponsored by Newton’s Green Decade Coalition.

The first speaker this year will be Dr. Cynthia Rosenzweig, leader of the Climate Impacts Group at NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies. In addition to her work for NASA, Rosenzweig is also an adjunct research scientist at the Columbia University Earth Institute and an adjunct professor at Barnard College.

Her free talk is set for Jan. 22, at 7 pm, at Druker Auditorium in the Newton Free Library. For more information, call 617-965-1995 or visit the coalition’s website.
