Curious about warming effects? Check out this webinar!
Join Metcalf Institute’s Climate Change and the News Webinar featuring Katharine Hayhoe an atmospheric scientist at Texas Tech University.

Nearly 200 nations recently agreed to limit global warming to no more than 1.5 degrees. Now, the question is: can we do it? Staying below a  global temperature target depends on many human factors – technology, demographics, energy policy, and economics. But it also depends on climate science; specifically, how sensitive the earth’s climate is to all the heat-trapping gases we’re pouring into it, and what it does with them. Join Katharine Hayhoe as she discusses the contributions and limitations of climate science to setting and achieving global targets. Submit questions and follow along using #MetcalfCC.
