Climate Change Check-in: Where are we now + where are we heading?

January 13, 2021
Ask an MIT professor your questions about climate change science, policy, and technology.

We know you get it: climate change is happening and is impacting Americans now. But we also know you have questions — and want a straight-forward answer, without the technical details, rhetoric, or hype. Join us for a jargon-free explainer on climate change science with our guest expert, MIT’s Prof. Noelle Selin. We’ll answer questions like:

  • How bad is climate change, really?
  • What’s in store for the future?
  • What will it take to slow down climate change — or is it already too late?
  • What could we expect with a Biden presidency and what would it mean for America?

Join our jargon-free, virtual Q&A with guest expert Prof. Noelle Selin of the MIT Institute for Data, Systems and Society; MIT Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences; and MIT Technology and Policy Program. Together, we’ll unpack where the world stands with climate change today and what we can expect in the years to come.

Send us your questions before and during the event:

Text or leave a voicemail at (617) 398-0051 so we can play your question during the event! Or email hello@civicseries.org
