WKU Professor Contributes To Historic Climate Report

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- A national climate report released from The White House is creating buzz around the country. It's also got people talking on the campus of WKU.

That's because the school's own doctor Rezaul Mahmood was one of the lead scientists on the 3 1/2 year project that is considered the most comprehensive U.S. focused climate change report ever produced.

Mahmood said it was an honor just to be asked to participate in such a prestigious and important project.

"I looked at it as voluntary work basically. It's a service to the nation. People do a lot of other dangerous things to serve the nation. It's just reading and commenting. It's giving my expert opinion based on my background."

The WKU Geography and Geology Professor said in the report, Kentucky fares well but noted that the state is likely to face hotter and drier summers.
