Climate Change: The Short Story

Climate Change: The Short Story is a talk by Dr. Lynne Carter who will describe the six major points about climate change that we all need to understand. 
 
  1. What is climate change?
  2. What is not climate change?
  3. What is already happening?
  4. What is projected?
  5. What are the likely impacts? 
  6. What are the potential responses that could reduce those impacts?
If you can see the problem, the evidence, and the responses then you are in a good place to better understand the options and the "whys" that we all need to know to implement good climate choices and decisions.
 
A Q&A will follow the talk.
Free and open to all.
