Confronting our Emerging Global Climate Crisis in Northern Michigan

Dr. Knute Nadelhoffer
Thursday, June 6, 2019
7:30-8:30 PM
Gates Lecture Hall Off Campus Location
Climate change is upon us and its impacts on our health, economic well-being, and security are rapidly accelerating, at both the global scale and within our Great Lakes region. It is also threatening the integrity of the ecological systems that purify our water, cleanse our atmosphere, and provide us with other environmental and economic benefits. This talk will describe the causes of and evidence for climate change, and will compare the predicted effects of alternative climate change mitigation actions on our region. It will conclude with recommendations for effective policies aimed at minimizing and eventually reducing the most severe consequences of our unfolding climate crisis.

Free and open to the public.
