Climate Change in Oregon: We’re seeing it, but can we stop It?

Kathie Dello 
Associate Director of the Oregon Climate Change Research Institute at OSU 

Tuesday, May 23
6:30 - 8 p.m. 
Wille Hall, COCC Coats Campus Center, Bend Campus 

Climate change is a global problem, but the impacts are already being felt here locally. Oregon’s farms, forests, oceans and water are at risk from rising temperatures and changing precipitation patterns. However, it is not too late to solve the problem. A two-pronged approach of mitigation and adaption will be required to secure Oregon’s future in a changing climate. 

In this presentation, Dello will talk about findings from a recent climate report on Oregon and about the importance of connecting sound climate science with decision-making.
