"Climate Change in New England"
A Lecture Series Presented by Salem Sound Coastwatch and the National Park Service
There is no doubt that climate change is a complex subject and is challenging us in ways we've never seen before. Based on what scientists understand, the changes we are seeing today are far more rapid than anything that has occurred in our planet's history. This 5-part lecture series concluded our programming for 2013. We will continue bringing experts to share with us how climate change is affecting our New England region, what is being done about it, and how you can help.
Please stay involved. Videos of the presentation are being prepared. Sign up for our e-newsletter, SoundNet, to hear when they are ready for viewing and to learn about our 2014 programs.
