Too hot! Too dry! Too wet! The roller coaster of extreme weather in a climate-changing world

February 26 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM PST

Free

What in the world is happening? What can we expect, and what can we do?

In the past, even the recent past, wildfires had a season – early summer through early autumn. Today, though, the calendar turns are no more than marks for another day, another week, another month of wildfires popping up. And these fires are devastating. Should we have seen that coming? Could we have?

Those questions lead us into looking at droughts. Where in the world are they? What weather patterns support and maintain them? When patterns repeat and repeat, one reinforcing another, do they signify change in climate? And what about the relationships between droughts and floods?

While it may feel that we are helpless, helpless is not our only option. Grounded in the reality of what is happening, we’ll conclude by exploring together how we might help with recovery and restoration, prevention, and scaling solutions.

A joint presentation by Linda M. Kelley and Dr. Keith E. Grant
