 Scientists, politicians, oil barons and even Leonardo DiCaprio have all chimed in to give their take on the existence or non-existence of climate change; but what does a changing climate actually mean, who thinks it’s really going to happen, and if the ‘climate’ warms, what does that mean for people on the ground? This talk by Elizabeth Marino, research associate at OSU – Cascades, will give you the run down on what natural scientists mean when they talk about climate change and what social scientists are determining about who will be most affected. If you’ve ever wanted to hear an overview of the climate data, and see what turning up the heat will mean for social-life as we know it, this is the talk for you.
