Evansville Central Library, 200 SE Martin Luther King Jr Blvd
Melissa Widhalm, Operations Manager of the Purdue University Climate Change Research Center, will give a talk on “Indiana’s Past and Future Climate” on Wednesday, September 25, at 6:30 p.m., in the Browning Room of the Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library – Central. She will discuss local climate change impacts and solutions.
The presentation will include findings set forth in the Indiana Climate Change Impacts Assessment, a series of reports generated by the Purdue research center based on the latest scientific research and created with input from over 100 scientists and over 50 organizations throughout Indiana. These reports detail how the climate in Indiana is changing and the ways in which the changing climate will affect many aspects of our society, including human health, public infrastructure, water resources, agriculture, energy use, urban environments, and ecosystems.
This event is free and open to the public. It is co-sponsored by the Sierra Club of Southwest Indiana, Citizens’ Climate Lobby, Tri-State Creation Care, the Evansville Audubon Society, and the League of Women Voters of Southwestern Indiana.
