Climate Change Debate

Sunday, July 8 - Climate Change Debate

Global warming: is it all doom and gloom, or are there benefits of a warmer climate and longer summers?  Thirteen students from the University of California Santa Cruz will present a live debate at the Beringia Center on July 8. Drawing from their backgrounds in ecology and environmental change and from their experiences during a three-week tour of Yukon and Northwest Territories, the students will present formal arguments about whether the bad aspects of global warming outweigh the potential benefits, with particular emphasis on how the Yukon is projected to change. Come to be entertained, to hear the latest science, and to be the judge of which side wins!

This is a free event with refreshments.  Doors open at 6:45 pm and the debate starts at 7:00 pm.
