8/11/21– The Colorado River and Changing Climate
Brad Udall, Senior Water & Climate Research Scientist, Colorado Water Institute, Colorado State University
Climate scientists agree that the Colorado River Basin is already much warmer and will continue to get warmer – over 1°C since the mid 20th century and potentially 2°C or more by mid-century – resulting in reduced stream flows and increased system losses.
8/25 – Webinar – Tundra be Dammed
Dr. Ken Tape, University of Alaska Fairbanks
Willows have been moving into the tundra of Alaska with a warming climate, displacing native vegetation. Beavers have followed their food supply and built dams, intensifying permafrost melt. Join Ken as he lets you in on his long-term studies of the North Slope of Alaska. This presentation will be a webinar.
9/8 – Adapting Farming with a Changing Climate
Dr. Tim Crews, Director of Ecological Intensification and Lead Scientist, Soil Ecology Program, The Land Institute, Kansas
The Land Institute is a science-based research organization working to develop an alternative to current destructive agricultural practices. Join Tim as he discusses progress on advancing perennial grain crops and polyculture farming.
