Most people view climate change as a threat distant in time and space. They think its impacts will only effect people in the future, and in other countries. As a result, climate change isn't considered an urgent problem. To build the political will for climate solutions this is an important challenge to address through connecting how climate change is impacting us now.
Join Dana Nuccitelli, environmental scientist and climate writer for The Guardian and Skeptical Science to learn more about how climate change is impacting people today by intensifying extreme weather events like hurricanes, heat waves, floods, and droughts; hurting the economy; and putting us on a path heading toward the planet's sixth mass extinction.
