Climate Science on Tap- Going to Extremes: Is It Climate Change or Just Bad Weather?

  • Lagunitas Seattle TapRoom & Beer Sanctuary 1550 Northwest 49th Street Seattle, WA, 98107 United States (map)

CascadiaNow!'s fiscally sponsored project Cascadia Climate Action presents another Climate Science on Tap evening!

Doors open at 5:30. All ages welcome, as well as dogs! Free!

Will floods, fires, and droughts be the new normal? How will people and wildlife cope? And how do these extreme weather events affect public dialogue about climate change? A group of esteemed researchers will examine the relationship between extreme weather and our changing climate with engaging presentations and an informative panel discussion.

Come early for a good seat and a bite to eat from the food truck. Enjoy the conversation around the tables, while waiting for the panelists to begin!
