Climate Change on Thursday's Access Utah

Mar 27, 2014

According to Reuters, a 29-page draft by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will warn that “Global warming will disrupt food supplies, slow world economic growth and may already be causing irreversible damage to nature” and “will also outline many ways to adapt to rising temperatures, more heatwaves, floods and rising seas.”

On Thursday’s AU we’re going to look at the “State of the Climate” with Kevin Trenberth, a Distinguished Senior Scientist in the Climate Analysis Section at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, and a leader in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change assessments and in the World Climate Research Programme. We’ll also be talking with Utah State Climatologist Robert Gillies. They’ll both be giving presentations at the Spring Runoff Conference at USU next week: Dr. Trenberth will speak on “Climate Change and Water: From the Globe to Utah” and Dr. Gillies’ presentation is “Long-range Prediction of Winter-Prolonged Inversions.”  We hope you’ll join the program with your question or comment. What do you think will happen to our climate other the next decade or so? What can and should be done to address climate change? Comment on our Facebook Page
