The Science Behind Climate Change At Trout Lake Nature Center

Posted on Thursday, January 11, 2018 at 1:44 am

Florida can be deluged by heavy rains or experience prolonged dry spells. It tends to swing from too much to too little. Although these extremes can be part of Florida’s natural weather, the state is facing changes because of climate change and sea level rise. On January 19 at 6 PM, Dr. Peter Jacques, UCF Florida Climate Institute (FCI) will speak about the science behind climate change, potential impacts or changes to Florida, and how our definitions of sustainability could change.
Dr. Jacques has spent over a decade working in global environmental politics and sustainability and published five books on related issues. He gives a unique perspective on this often contentious topic and the science behind it.
FCI is a multidisciplinary network of national and international research and public organizations, scientists and individuals concerned with achieving a better understanding of climate change and sea level rise. As a member of FCI, Dr. Jacques contributions have been significant.
Dr. Jacques works to educate and push people to think sharply and deeply about living well together. To live well, we have to be aware, care and act. Come learn about FCI, the science behind climate change, potential impacts, and what is or isn’t sustainable.
The program is free of charge; donations are welcome to help support the private, not-for-profit nature center. For more information, email tlncdirector@gmail.com or call 352-357-7536.
