SciCafe: Cool Solutions for Hot Cities
SciCafe returns to the Cullman Hall of the Universe for the 2022-23 season!
What is the role of urban natural spaces in adaptation to climate change? Can cities like New York adequately prepare for the looming crisis?
Timon McPhearson, a professor of Urban Ecology and the Director of the Urban Systems Lab, uses big data and artificial intelligence in scientific research geared to creating equitable and resilient cities in the face of climate-driven natural disasters such as hurricanes, extreme heatwaves, and urban flooding.
In this SciCafe, McPhearson will discuss our new climate reality and insights from the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reports, the important role of urban centers such as New York City in the development of climate change adaptation strategies, and the science behind potential solutions that are currently under investigation.
This event is a collaboration between the AMNH Public Programs and the Center for Biodiversity and Conservation’s Mack Lipkin Man and Nature Series.
Venue: American Museum of Natural History
200 Central Park West
