A free event entitled “Community Conversations on Climate Change” will be held Tuesday evening at 7 p.m. in the Jim Bridger room at the Logan Library. Utah State University graduate students in the Climate Adaptation Science program will be leading group conversations related to the recently-released fourth national climate assessment. The report detailed what could be a bleak economic future for the United States if climate change is not addressed.
On KVNU’s For the People program recently, Will Munger of USU’s Department of Environment and Society, talked about why they wanted to go beyond the bounds of the campus and reach out to the community.
“The reason we’re bringing this to the library is because we want to be available to the community as young scientists, to be able to help answer people’s questions around climate change. It’s a complex issue; there’s a lot of aspects to it. But the science is really clear and what’s also really clear is the need to do something about it,” said Munger.
He said these students are on the front lines of looking at what the impacts will be on food and agriculture, plants, water and human health. For more information: USUCLIMATEADAPTATION@GMAIL.COM
