How is climate change impacting weather in our region? Will floods and droughts be the new normal? And how will people and wildlife cope? This Climate Science on Tap will examine the relationship between extreme weather events and our changing climate. Three scientists (Joshua Lawler [School of Environmental and Forest Sciences], James Rufo-Hill [Seattle Public Utilities], and Rachel White [Joint Institute for the Study of the Atmosphere and Ocean]) share the data and their perspectives in riveting presentations and a lively panel discussion of the issue and the impacts to the people and creatures that call the PNW home. Grab a bite and a beer, learn what global warming may do to our weather, while making friends and enjoying some stimulating discussion around the tables!
