Adapting to Climate Chage: Challenges and Prospects I

bioforum_screen1The Academy’s most recent BioForum, Adapting to Climate Chage: Challenges and Prospects, was held on April 17th. Speakers covered topics including the impact of climate change on California’s grape and wine industry, predicted impacts on California’s coastal waters, the role and strategies of power utilities in California, and communicating the science of climate change in an informal education context. I (Peter Roopnarine) moderated the session, and also gave the introduction. My presentation may be viewed here. I will post the other presentations as they become available.

  2. Both. There’s not much to elaborate on.As a gereanl rule (one that has been followed for centuries), when it is cold outside, wear a coat. When it is warm outside, take the coat off.The Earth’s climate has warmed and it has Cooled, many times over many millions of years with . and without . Man.Don’t let the AGW hippies fool you.

  3. Kimiko, your comment is an unfortunately naive one. When the weather outside is cold, wear a coat. When it’s warm, take it off. When the climate changes, look out.
