Cocktails will begin at 4:30 with science presentations from 5 to 6:30.
Please RSVP by Wednesday, September 5.
Floods, droughts, extreme temperatures, and severe storms are occurring with increasing frequency and intensity, breaking records and forming trends that raise urgent new questions about climate change. Join us for a special panel discussion with climate scientists who will cut through common misconceptions to lay out the facts about climate change and talk about adaptations and possible solutions for a future of weather weirdness.
Moderated by Heidi Cullen, Lamont-Doherty alumna and chief climatologist with Climate Central, the panel will include:
Lisa Goddard, Director of the International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI)
Peter B. Kelemen, Arthur D. Storke Memorial Professor, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory
Richard Seager, Palisades Geophysical Institute/Lamont Research Professor, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory
Jason E. Smerdon, Lamont Associate Research Professor, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory
Climate Central’s recently-published book, Global Weirdness, presents a succinct overview of current climate science. The book will be on sale at the event on September 12.
