In this video from the Argonne Out Loud lecture series, Doug Sisterson from the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Climate Research Facility presents: Climate Change: Fact, Fiction and What You Can Do.
Climate change – or as Doug Sisterson, research meteorologist at Argonne National Laboratory, prefers to call it, climate disruption – is probably the greatest challenge we face in modern society, yet many of us don’t fully understand the causes or the consequences. Washington Governor Jay Inslee famously stated: “We’re the first generation to feel the impact of climate change and the last generation that can do something about it.”
Sisterson, who is also senior manager at Argonne for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Climate Research Facility, addresses the mixed messages we receive in media and elsewhere and will explore in detail the striking scientific data that points to trouble ahead. He also talks about what we can do right now to help ensure a better outlook for our children, grandchildren, and beyond.
