TODAY! [PCC 586/475] Ebi on "A Summary of IPCC 2015 Working Group II:
Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability"

Tuesday, October 04, 2016, 3:30 -4:30 PM
Location: OCN 425



Series overview: We will be exploring both the impacts of climate change
(both slow changes and extreme events) and the challenges that climate
change brings to society. Projections of climate change suggest human
populations will be impacted in multiple ways. The stability of governments
will be challenged by extreme events that can impact housing, water and food
supply. Stresses on natural resources can in turn lead to migration,
political instability, violence, and humanitarian disasters. In addition,
the strength of human society also relies on energy, food, and water
security. In this class, we will explore these challenges from both natural
science and social science perspectives.
