"The Great Global Warming Debate"-OLLI Study Group: Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at U-M (50+).

  community member   < less

Can science really predict the future of our climate? There are essentially four (not two) schools of thought in this controversy: In this class we will be the jury and look objectively at the data, assess the merits of each school's scientific interpretation of this same data, eliminate the show biz and, hopefully, reach our own decision about what the facts are and what actions might be appropriate. Dr. Kaufman has an extensive background in thermodynamics and has taught courses on weather.

Wine Tasting: The Noble Grapes at Ann Arbor Cooks!.

  community member   < less Ann Arbor Cooks Logo

Even though these six grapes have been traditionally considered the end-all-be-all of wine superstars, that is mostly due to the fact that the French were the first wine lovers to meticulously classify and mystify grapes and these are all French grape varieties. With the passing of time and the acceptance of other regions of the world into the wine's finest club, this perception is beginning to change. However, it is absolutely necessary to embark into our foray by accepting the importance of these varietals. We have Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Riesling on the white corner -- Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Pinot Noir on the red corner -- and that leaves a lot of other varietals in the cold. Syrah is calling his senator, Nebbiolo is screaming murder, Chenin Blanc is stuttering in disbelief. But for now we have to tackle the six above. Join me for a noble night of classic grapes!

Its sultry, smoky and sophisticated cousin Mezcal will also appear. Classes are hands-on, with lots of tasting opportunities.
