Science Cafe: NC Climate A Lifetime of Change

Benjamin Franklin once said, “The only certain things in life are death and taxes,” indicating that change is inevitable. How has the world changed in the last 30 to 40 years? Where would we be without cell phones, DVDs, and the Internet? Ecosystems have also historically changed over time; think logged old growth in the lake states, farming in New England, and fires in the South. What about climate? Has it stayed the same since 1970 or have you noticed drier summers and warmer winters? Greater climate variability is the new norm that will increasingly impact our everyday lives. Whether you live in or travel to the North Carolina mountains, the Piedmont, or the coast, climate change impacts will likely affect your lives in the next 30 years as much as technology has changed your lives during the past 30 years. Join our July Science Café to meet Dr. Steve McNulty, and learn more about the latest research efforts that could influence the way you view how climate change impacts your family. More information
