Webinar: The Science Behind Climate Change

3 February-- 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Scientists propose we are currently living in the Anthropocene, a geological epoch that has seen the entire planet altered by the actions of anthrōpos (Greek for “human being”). Our actions have resulted in a global climate change more rapid than any that Earth has experienced before. Further, this climate change comes at a time following an interesting period of relative climate stability. How is it that humans have disrupted 10,000 years of climate stability in just one hundred years?
Join us on February 3rd @ 7:30pm to hear Dr. Ian Spooner and Dr. Rob Raeside, from Acadia University’s Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences provide context to and answer that complicated question. The two professors will provide you the foundational science behind climate change. We hope to enable you to understand and think critically about the issue, as well as the potential mitigation and adaptation efforts. This is an opportunity to answer any questions, however daunting or complex, that you may have about climate change!

This event is part of our winter series on Climate Change. See our future events to continue learning about various aspects of this complicated issue.
