Climate Change on Cape Cod

Climate Change on Cape Cod: What’s at Stake and What Can We Do

Please join us on Tuesday, November 9th from 4pm to 5pm via Zoom as Dr. Heather Goldstone from the Woodwell Climate Research Center in Woods Hole presents a lecture on climate change on Cape Cod.

Two recent UN reports indicate that we are now committed to hitting 1.5C of warming by early next decade, and are on track to hit 2.7C this century. With the damaging impacts of climate change already apparent and increasing, it’s critical for communities to understand the risks they face—those that are inevitable and require adaptation, and those that we can still avert. This Climate Change on Cape Cod: What’s at Stake and What Can We Do lecture brings the risks, opportunities, and choices presented by the global challenge of climate change down to the local level.  A Q&A will follow the lecture.
