Rapid changes in the climate are affecting people and ecosystems in the Southwest and around the world, and there is a lot the public can do.
At 7 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 31, in the Los Alamos Nature Center Planetarium, Dr. Charles Keller will introduce climate science and lead a discussion about climate change and what the public can do.
Keller has spent about 25 years studying climate change and interacting with the leading scientists in the field. He has written several lengthy review articles trying to make sense of the hundreds of scientific papers on aspects of the subject.
This talk is the first of two events focused on climate change this winter. The following Tuesday, Feb. 7, PEEC will show the National Geographic film Before the Flood, which gives a different perspective of our changing climate. The Feb. 7 event is sponsored by Positive Energy Solar.
This discussion will take place at the Los Alamos Nature Center at 2600 Canyon Road. It is free to attend, and no registration is required.
