Academy Conversation: Natural Disasters, Extreme Weather and Climate Change
Start Date: 9/29/2020Start Time: 3:00 PM
End Date: 9/29/2020End Time: 4:00 PM

Event Description

Join Academy scientists and guest panelists to discuss the impacts that climate change is having on today’s extreme weather events and natural disasters.

Wildfires in the Western U.S. are burning at an unprecedented scope and scale. Hurricanes are more frequent, and more destructive, than ever before. We can no longer pretend that climate change is something we need to start preparing for – the effects of climate change are here now, and science knows what’s going on. We are seeing the increased frequency and intensity of extreme weather events play out in the ways that climate scientists have been warning us about since 1988. So, what happens next?
