NAZCCA and Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) will feature a presentation and discussion on "Climate Change, Causes and Cascading Consequences" by Stefan Sommer.

If you have ever wondered about what aspects of climate are really changing then this is a presentation meant for you. The current scientific understanding of climate change will be presented as well as the effects of these changes on Arizona ecosystems, on human well-being, and on the Arizona and US economies. Regional climate change and regional economic impacts will also be discussed.

Dr. Stefan Sommer is Director of Education at the Merriam Powell Center for Environmental Research at Northern Arizona University. His doctoral work is in ecological sustainability and he has studied effective communication across cultural boundaries in many contexts including PBS film production.
