Climate change is already affecting New York – trees are budding earlier in the spring, summer heat waves are more common, and when it rains, it pours! Long-term climate data confirm that average summer temperature in New York is already 2°F warmer than in 1970, winter temperature is 4°F warmer, and the water cycle is being affected.

What is the science behind the changing climate? What are the complex impacts we are already seeing to New York’s temperature, growing season, and water resources? This webinar will provide a background overview of the science of global climate change – how the earth’s climate works, why and how we know it is warming – and how climatologists are able to downscale climate change projections to New York State. Dr. DeGaetano will also discuss changes we are already seeing to NY’s climate, to provide a basis for what educators need to know to start communicating with the audiences they work with: farmers, land managers, nursery owners, municipalities and communities. We will also introduce some new resources and planned projects from the Cornell Climate Change PWT for educating audiences in NYS.
