Climate Change: What’s Happening and Why it Matters for NC Nature

We will start with an overview of the overwhelming evidence that Earth’s climate is changing and the well understood physical reasons for these changes. We will discuss what this means for NC, focusing on the types of events – floods, droughts, heatwaves – that likely will have the greatest impact on NC’s natural environment, and we will take a necessarily speculative look at what some of those impacts might be.
