Water: The Essence of Life (The Big Picture Climate Change Series)
April 21 @ 7:30 pm - 8:45 pm
Longmont Museum shares a big picture view of our global situation and explores earth, air, fire, and water with a series of panels, lectures, and conversations with local scientists and other experts in their field.
About 60% of an adult human body is made of water and about 71% of the planet’s surface is covered in water. Water is the essence of life. However, as climate change perturbs the water cycle, too much or too little water in the wrong place at the wrong time can have devastating impacts. In this panel we’ll explore the state of the water cycle, the Colorado River, water quality, and much more, and efforts to effectively conserve and manage our water resources, and protect our lands and its inhabitants from flood damage.
Panelists: Stephanie Malin, environmental sociologist, CSU; Brad Udall, senior water & climate research scientist, Colorado WaterCenter; and more TBA.
Moderated by Susan Moran, print/online journalist and a host and producer of KGNU’s “How on Earth” science show.
