Rapid climate changes are affecting people and ecosystems in the Southwest and around the world, and there is a lot people can do.
At 7 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 16, in the Los Alamos Nature Center planetarium, Dr. Chick Keller will introduce climate science and lead a discussion about how people can move forward.
This talk is part of a lecture series on climate change organized by Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC).
