“Climate Change – Here in New Hampshire”

The science of climate change and its likely impacts on the New England region was the topic of discussion at the Dunbarton Congregational Church, on Sunday, April 24, 2016.

Barry Rock, UNH Professor Emeritus in the Earth Systems Research Center at the Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans and Space spoke to these the following questions:  What do earth-orbiting satellites tell us about  the current and future impacts of global warming on our local landscape?  How is what’s happening today different from past climate changes?
