150,000 Years of Climate Change and a Look at the Next 150

  • Museum of Science Museum Of Science Driveway Boston, MA, 02114 United States

Over the past 150,000 years our species has flourished in spite of two epic glacial periods, surviving the extreme climatic volatility of the past through ingenuity, adaptability, and cooperation. Most recently Bostonians survived a record breaking 110.6 inches of snow. Register to learn more about that climatic event.

Join Toby Ault, Assistant Professor, Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences; College of Agriculture and Life Sciences for an overview of global climate change and presentation of a cautiously optimistic vision of the future. Professor Ault will discuss the research conducted at the Emergent Climate Risk Lab (ECRL) at Cornell University, what we know about the science of climate risk, and the ecological and economic consequences that can result.
