Beyond the Headlines: Understanding This Year's Climate Report
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Go beyond the headlines about the August report from the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC), which details how rising global temperatures are affecting land around the world, how land use contributes to climate change, and the implications for biodiversity, food security, and human health. Dig into what the latest research reveals—and what we can do about it—with atmospheric scientist Katharine Hayhoe and Cynthia Scharf, senior strategy director from Carnegie Climate Governance Initiative (C2G). The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience. Meet the Speakers Katharine Hayhoe is an accomplished atmospheric scientist who studies climate change and why it matters to us here and now.
