Climate Change Impacts: Agriculture and the Built Environment

 

The earth is warming, causing a number of observable changes that go beyond the loss of sea ice in the Arctic, including erratic weather bringing extremes in rainfall and temperature, gradual acidification of the ocean threatening our shellfish, declining native tree species, new invasive species and diseases.

 

The public is invited to learn about the environmental changes underway now, how they will affect agriculture and the built environment in the near future and what steps can be taken.
