Hundreds Attend “Extreme Events and Climate Change” Forum at New England Aquarium

September 14, 2017–A sold-out crowd filled the Aquarium’s Simons IMAX® Theatre for “Extreme Events and Climate Change: What We Know and What We Can Do,” co-hosted by LWVMA and LWV-Boston, the New England Aquarium, and UMass Boston School for the Environment.

Dr. Ellen Douglas of UMass Boston laid out the evidence for the causes of climate change, its impact on sea level rise in Massachusetts, and efforts to overcome the devastating changes in store for the region through mitigation and adaptation.

This event is part of LWVMA’s 2017 Climate and Energy Solutions Series and can be viewed at this link.
