Research to the Rescue:

How Science is Our Best Hope in a Changing Climate

Led by Dr. Deborah Bronk

By pumping huge amounts of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, humanity is conducting a massive experiment on the planet. To prevent severe climate disruption, we must reduce carbon dioxide levels by committing to emit less. In addition, scientists are working to develop approaches that mitigate and even reverse climate change. Join Dr. Deborah Bronk as she overviews the field of climate change mitigation and the ways Bigelow Laboratory scientists are contributing to this emerging science both locally and globally.

About Café Sci

Bigelow Laboratory’s Café Sci is a fun, free way for you to engage with ocean researchers on critical issues and groundbreaking science. Pick a chair, grab a drink, and let’s talk about the mysteries, challenges, and opportunities of the sea.

We’re looking forward to our 2019 Café Sci series, which is again being made possible through sponsorship by HM Payson. Each event will be held from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences. We hope to see you there, as well as at our annual open house on Friday, July 19.

Seating is limited at this popular summer series. Please register today!
