Climate lectures scheduled

-A A +A

Los Alamos National Laboratory climate researcher Nate McDowell will discuss climate change and its effects on forest systems in a series of Frontiers in Science lectures beginning Wednesday at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science in Albuquerque.
“The data we have suggests that forests of the Southwest and many other areas are in jeopardy of a massive die-off in the next few decades,” McDowell said. “I was a doubter of these results until we generated more than three estimates, all independent, which came to the same conclusion.”
The talk, titled “It’s not easy staying green: Forests and climate change,” will focus on the increasing climate temperature and the imposing threat it poses to forests.
Because of climate warming, forests are facing threats unlike any other they have seen in thousands of years. Warming dries the forests so that, from the perspective of the trees, even short droughts are severe. No forests appear to be immune to this challenge.
In his talks, McDowell will explain the scientific basis for these conclusions and discuss the options for maintaining forests in the face of this threat. McDowell talks about his research and the upcoming Frontiers in Science lectures in a video. All Frontiers in Science lectures begin at 7 p.m. at the following locations:
