Intro to the Science of Climate ChangeFamily friendly - adult with child image.

Collaborated With: MIT Climate CoLab

The phrase "climate change" is prevalent in our modern lives, but can we actually experience the climate? If you step outside today, can you answer the question, What is today's climate? This workshop will help you understand that the answer to this question is "no." All we can experience, at any given minute, hour, or day, is weather; to understand the climate requires specific, long-term analysis of many fators. Increase your understanding as we briefly explore trends and scientific understanding of changes in temperature, humidity, droughts, etc., and how they will impact our lives and our planet.
