Let's Talk ...The Arctic is Melting- Why it Matter

Thursday, April 21, 4 - 5 p.m. on Zoom 

A recent report by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicts the U S coastlines will see up to a foot of sea level rise by 2050. The report projects as much sea-level rise in the next 30 years as we experienced in the previous 100 years. At least two feet of sea level rise is likely by 2100.

 

The Melting Arctic has major implications for global climate, due both to the loss of reflective surfaces and to the disruption of planetary wind and ocean currents. Watch this short video to learn more. Then join us on Zoom for a one-hour Let’s Talk session on Thursday, April 21 at 4 PM ET to participate in a small group discussion about this important topic.

After a brief introduction, we will break into small groups for discussion. Starter questions will be provided, but your group will be free to discuss whatever it wants.

Upcoming: 

May 5 ------ I Live in the Eastern U.S. Does Climate Change Matter to Me?
May 19 ---- Take a Second Look: Climate Science in Pictures
