Increasing temperatures, melting glaciers, rising sea levels…crisis and disaster at every turn. Weather extremes seem to be more common; the length of our seasons is changing. How will these affect our food supply and water security, our health and prosperity? What’s real? What does it have to do with me, here in Eastern NC?
If you want answers to such questions, Carolina Nature Coalition presents Rosana Nieto Ferreira, “Climate Change: Science and Impacts In Eastern NC”, Thursday, April 14, at 7:00pm at the New Bern-Craven County Public Library, 400 Johnson St. The event is free and open to the public.
Dr. Ferreira has grants from the National Science Foundation, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, among others. Her many publications have appeared in the International Journal of Climatology, Journal of Geophysical Research, Journal of the Atmospheric Sciences, and Journal of Climate, among others. Employed by NASA Goddard Space Flight Center before joining the faculty at ECU, Dr. Ferreira is currently the editor of the Journal of Climate.
