[pccgrads] Fall PCC 586 Current Research Seminar: Impacts of climate change and challenges to society Tuesdays 3:30 in OSB 425 (mostly)

UW PCC uwpcc at uw.edu

ATM S/ESS/OCEAN 586 Current Research in Climate Change

In this seminar, 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.

Seminars will be at 3:30 on Tuesdays in Ocean Sciences Building 425 unless otherwise indicated.
