“Research to the Rescue: How Science is Our Best Hope in a Changing Climate,” led by Dr. Deborah Bronk. 5-6:30 p.m. By pumping huge amounts of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, humanity is conducting a massive experiment on the planet. To prevent severe climate disruption, we must reduce carbon dioxide levels by committing to emit less. In addition, scientists are working to develop approaches that mitigate and even reverse climate change. Join Dr. Deborah Bronk as she overviews the field of climate change mitigation and the ways Bigelow Laboratory scientists are contributing to this emerging science both locally and globally. 60 Bigelow Dr., East Boothbay.
