The Fourth National Climate Assessment:
Issues, Risks, and Adaptation
with the Earth Forum’s favorite climate scientist –
Dr. Wayne Higgins
Director of NOAA’s Climate Program Office
Earth’s climate is now changing faster than at any point in modern civilization. These changes are primarily the result of human activities, the evidence of which is overwhelming and continues to strengthen. The impacts of climate change are already being felt across the country, and climate-related threats to Americans’ physical, social, and economic well-being are rising.
The Fourth National Climate Assessment characterizes specific risks across regions and sectors in an effort to help people assess the risks they face, create and implement a response plan, and monitor and evaluate the efficacy of a given action. Dr. Higgins will present an overview of the Assessment, with emphasis on growing challenges to the economy and our Nation’s infrastructure, the natural environment, and human health and quality of life.

A Decade of Listening, Learning and Acting!
We’re celebrating ten years of The Earth Forum gathering friends, partners, colleagues, past for a look back and a survey of what’s ahead.
The Earth Forum of Howard County calls together Earth activists, faith communities, government agencies and interested individuals for civil and informed discussion of climate change, sustainable living and developing communities of cooperation through education ideas and actions to touch hearts for the majesty of creation.
The Earth Forum is open to all interested persons, and is free.
