Friends of Robbins Library Annual Meeting and Climate Change talk
April 25, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Friends of Robbins Annual Meeting followed by a presentation by Professor Brian Helmuth of Northeastern University on Communicating Climate Change Through Science and Technology
Climate change is a global phenomenon, but its impacts play out on very local scales. Specifically, impacts are the result of weather events, which are in turn “trained” by climate. Moreover, the ways in which nonhuman organisms experience their world is radically different from how we humans perceive it, making it difficult for us to comprehend how we are affecting the natural world, and in turn how it affects society.
The presentation will follow a brief Annual Meeting of the Friends of Robbins Library at 7pm.
