Water and Vermont's Changing Climate

Talk Given At:
Rockingham Free Public Library, 65 Westminster Street, Bellows Falls, Vermont
Date of Talk:

Nature Museum Program

Super storms? Seasonal shifts? Understanding the water cycle and how it will be modified by climate change is a real challenge.

Atmospheric scientist Dr. Alan K. Betts will discuss how global climate change is affecting Vermont’s seasons and how water (as liquid, ice and vapor) is involved in everything. He will highlight paths to an adaptable, resilient future.

The Yale Forum on Climate Change and the Media has praised Betts for “addressing climate science in ways accessible to audiences concerned about their own back yards [and] …in ways loyal to the most rigorous scientific principles.”

Water connects all living things. This vital resource is the theme for Connecting the Drops, The Nature Museum’s 2013 public program series.
