Climate Change and Its Impact | Terry Root
The changing climate is changing… well, everything. Back-to-back 100-year floods, extended droughts, and the polar vortex are all connected to the disruption of our climate due to greenhouse gas emissions. Dr. Terry Root will discuss the science behind our changing climate and how plants and animals are being affected. She will also address Florida’s vulnerabilities and necessary remedies.
