As the climate changes and global temperatures rise, extreme weather events like Hurricane Harvey are becoming more frequent. As a coastal state, Massachusetts is increasingly at risk from dangerous storms and a rise in sea level. Professor Douglas will provide an in-depth look at the climate changes that have already occurred as well as those that scientific models predict for the future. She will also provide information about plans to address and respond to climate change, delving into these questions:
- What have we observed from our changing climate?
- What changes are in our future?
- What plans are in the works to adapt to these changes?
A Question and Answer session will follow.
