Climate Impacts Webinar with Climate Scientist Michael Mann

The Sept. 24 webinar, "Dire Predictions: Understanding Climate Change," is now available by clicking this link. This lecture with nationally renowned climate scientist Michael Mann began with a review of the now-solid evidence for a human influence on climate and an opening by PennFuture President Emeritus Larry J. Schweiger. Such evidence includes instrumental measurements available for the past two centuries, paleoclimate observations spanning more than a millennium, and comparisons of the predictions from computer models with observed patterns of climate change. The lecture then addressed the impacts of climate change including sea level rise, severe weather, and water supply.
