Why are we pushing the limits of our planet?

7/12/2017
Join our 3-part climate change series
 
Pushing the Limits is a series aimed at teaching science in an informal setting with a focus on climate change and extreme weather events -- like extreme heat and water scarcity -- and how they affect our region, economy and jobs. Think of it as book club meets science café. Each program is organized around a different theme and is paired with a related book.

The aim of the programs is to engage in thinking about and talking about and consider the reality of climate change in our everyday lives.
PLACE (Public Libraries Advancing Community Engagement) is a library-hosted reading, viewing and discussion program for adults. The program is made possible by grants from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the National Science Foundation.
