Climate Change: Rising to the Challenge

As climate change takes center stage in the presidential campaign, join a candid conversation with state climatologists whose professional experience spans four U.S. states —moderated by PBS science correspondent Miles O’Brien.

Learn about what in their jobs keeps these experts up at night and how they are working to protect residents, farms, businesses and infrastructure from rapidly changing climate-related risks.

Hosted jointly by SciLine — a philanthropically funded free service for journalists and scientists, based at the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Washington, D.C. — and the Drake University School of Journalism and Mass Communication, with support from the Schmidt Family Foundation. Reception following.
