Climate Connections is a free, spring lecture series designed to connect you with resiliency-themed content while exploring our societal understanding of climate science.
Evidence for a changing climate can be found everywhere, from sea level rise impacting coastal communities all along the Eastern Seaboard to Richmond experiencing more humid summers and fewer days with temperatures below freezing. These changes, though seemingly small, lead to more frequent and disruptive flooding, shifts in our springtime blooms and a longer mosquito season. The Climate Connections lecture series will focus on these issues, their impacts and ask: How can we make Virginia more resilient to these changes now and in the future?
Climate Connections is hosted by the Science Museum of Virginia under award # NA15SEC0080009 from the Environmental Literacy Grant (ELG) program of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), US Department of Commerce. Statements, findings, conclusions, and recommendations are those of the Museum and do not necessarily reflect views of NOAA or US Department of Commerce.
