Everybody’s heard about global climate change. Here’s the real story about how it works, why it’s happening, and how it’s likely to play out over the coming decades and even centuries.

We will discuss how climate change is impacting people, ecosystems, and economies, and how these impacts may develop. Learn about solutions for mitigating or adapting to climate change, and contribute to a lively discussion of the costs, benefits, and politics!
