Session Description:

DroughtClimate change is no longer just about what we might experience in the future, but what we are already experiencing today—from extreme storms to extreme droughts and what that means for our cities, our farms, and our health. Are we ready to cope with these changes? This year, a seminal report from the U.S. Global Change Research Program—the “National Climate Assessment”—looks at the impact of climate change across the country. Join authors of this report and other experts as they talk about what a warming planet means for us today and in the future.
