Explore Puget Sound, in depth

Jan 22, 2014

Ever wonder what climate change is all about; about killer whales; how glaciers created Puget Sound; how stormwater affects Puget Sound; or what good are trees?

If so, join WSU Snohomish County Extension Beach Watchers every first Wednesday night, from February through June, for presentations by local experts.

Feb. 5: Explore “Climate Change 101” with Dr. Richard Gammon, Professor Emeritus of Chemistry and Oceanography at the University of Washington.

A Planet in Peril

The latest findings (September 2013) from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC, Working Group I) will be summarized. This first of three reports documents the climatic changes already occurring in our world, and estimates the likely changes in global and regional temperature and precipitation and sea level in the coming decades out to 2100.

The probable impacts of these climate changes will be very serious for human health, for agriculture, for cities, and for the natural world (IPCC ’07).

Possible responses to the climate change threat range from the personal (lifestyle choices) to the regional/national (political choices) to the international (upcoming international climate treaty, 2015)

Presentation to begin at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 5, in the Common Room at Mukilteo City Hall, 11930 Cyrus Way, Mukilteo.
