SC 206 – THE IMPACTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE: PART 1. Class presentation available.

THE IMPACTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE: PART 1 – UCI Provost Initiatives for Water, Oceans and Sustainability

As our planet warms, humankind must discover solutions to global ecological problems before it is too late. We are being impacted by changing temperatures on land and in the ocean, changes in sea level and acidity, increasingly frequent extreme weather events, biological extinctions, and more. Please join OLLI for the first in a series of classes on the impacts of a changing climate. During this semester’s sessions (Part 1), we will be updated by researchers from the three UCI Provost Initiatives for Water, Oceans and Sustainability. This cross-discipline program brings together experts in many fields to understand what the changing climate means to the Earth, its societies and all living things.
