Wild Coachella: "Climate Change & Wildfire in California"

  • UCR Palm Desert 75080 Frank Sinatra Drive Palm Desert, CA, 92211 United States (map)

No one will argue that wildfires are bigger, hotter, starting earlier, and ending later than any time in recent history. Climate scientists have predicted exactly what we are experiencing – a hotter, and in our case drier, planet will result in more fires. At the same time, people are increasingly living in fire-prone regions. Are we on a collision course of human and natural disasters? Guest lecturer Thomas Scott, PhD

This free lecture is presented in partnership with UC Riverside, Palm Desert. For more information, call 760 834-0800.
