Apr 26, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm| Free
With all the doom and gloom surrounding the topic of sea level rise, it seems that most of the US will be under water by tomorrow. But what does scientific data show in regards to this increasing trend? At this Pint of Science event we will dive into the scientific evidence behind sea level projections and consider the implications of rising oceans for coastal communities, like NYC. Dr. Philip Orton will explain how scientists gauge sea levels and predict at-risk flood zones. Dr. Sergio Jarillo de la Torre will give insight into how rising sea levels are already creating environmental refugees globally. So before you start looking into real estate in Kansas, join us for a pint and learn the facts about sea level rise!
