Extreme Weather and Climate Change Event at the Koshland Museum

PrintThursday, April 7, 2016 – 6:30pm to 8:30pm

Don’t miss the chance to learn about Attribution of Extreme Weather Events in the Context of Climate Change, a new consensus report from the National Academy of Sciences that examines the current state of the science of attribution of extreme weather events to human-caused climate change and natural variability. The report considers different attribution approaches and different extreme event types, and identifies future research priorities.

Hear about the report from the Chair of the authoring committee, David Titley of the Pennsylvania State University, and committee member Adam Sobel of Columbia University. Seth Borenstein of the Associated Press will discuss some of the challenges in communicating climate change. Remarks and orchestrated Q&A will be followed by open audience Q&A, moderated by Climate Central’s Heidi Cullen.

Download the report and 4-page summary for free at the National Academies Press.

This event is free; registration required.
