Location: Burke Auditorium, 195 Prospect Street, New Haven, CT

Public discussions of global warming usually focus on greenhouse gaes and rising temperatures. But the most severe and looming impacts of climate change will likely come from shifts in regional and global water patterns. Water: The Looming Crises will focus on the science of predicting the future hydrologic cycle and on how industry, government and NGOs are taking steps to deal with all aspects of water in a warmer world.
