Climate Change: Implications for Nebraska

Sunday, August 23 • 2:00 - 4:00PM • Auditorium

World-renowned climate scientist and drought expert Dr. Don Wilhite addresses the implications of climate change for Nebraska. Dr. Wilhite is an author of the report, now recognized by the Nebraska Unicameral as authoritative on the topic. Looking ahead, the expectation for Nebraska is that drought frequency and severity will increase. Temperature increases will probably result in widespread drying over the U.S.  Climate scientists with drought expertise expect that a new, more severe Dust Bowl (worse than the 1930s) may arrive mid-century (2041-2070).

Nebraska will face many difficult challenges as a result of climate change. Embedded in each of these challenges are opportunities to create greater resilience as we adapt to these observed and projected changes in climate. Action now is preferable and more cost effective than reaction later.

The free event is sponsored by the Green Sanctuary committee. Other sponsors include: EnergyLinc, Nebraska IPL, and Citizens' Climate Lobby; they will be available in the gallery following the presentation.  Contact John Atkeison at (402) 915-3210 or john@EnergyLinc.org for more information.
