About this Event

We know you get it: climate change is happening and is impacting Americans now. But we also know you have questions -- and want a straight-forward answer, without the technical details, rhetoric, or hype. Join us for a jargon-free explainer on climate change science with our guest expert, MIT's Prof. Noelle Selin. We'll answer questions like:

  • How bad is climate change, really?
  • What's in store for the future?
  • What will it take to slow down climate change -- or is it already too late?
  • What could we expect with a Biden presidency and what would it mean for America?

Join our jargon-free, virtual Q&A with guest expert Prof. Noelle Selin of the MIT Institute for Data, Systems and Society; MIT Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences; and MIT Technology and Policy Program. Together, we’ll unpack where the world stands with climate change today and what we can expect in the years to come.
