Thursday, April 3: Climate Literacy and Trends- The complex system that makes our planet capable of supporting life, clearly described; the important distinction between climate and weather; and past and future climate trends in the Great Lakes Region, all taught in a way that makes climate change relevant and interesting to Michiganders.
Monday, April 14: Climate Change’s Impact on Michigan’s Wildlife Species- How species of birds, trees, mammals, fish and reptiles already are responding to a warmer, wetter, more climate-variable Michigan.
Monday, April 21: Social and Health Implications of Changing Climate- Water scarcity and poor water quality, both in Michigan and in other parts of North America, will likely affect state and national water policy. A warmer, wetter Michigan al increases the threats of disease and heat stroke in Michigan’s more vulnerable populations.
Monday, May 5: Climate Resilient Communities- How local units of government can improve community infrastructure to both adapt to and slow down climate change through the use of energy-efficient buildings, walkable neighborhoods, green spaces, and storm water management.
