To many, climate change seems too remote or too small to affect current decisions. What many do not realize is that the “small” global climate change signal can be amplified to a much larger degree locally – for example, a one degree global temperature increase can—and has—led to a 10 degree warming of the Great Lakes waters. Learn more about how this can happen and what it means for our future.

Please register for the Master Chats – Climate Change and the Great Lakes event. The event is FREE for all attendees. Light refreshments will be provided prior to the event.

New this year! Take part in a one-hour, post-lecture lunch with the presenters beginning at noon. You must pre-register for the lecture and advance purchase a $10 box lunch at least seven days prior to the event. Box lunches are served with a homemade cookie, fresh cut fruit, chips, and bottled water.

Parking: Student Union Parking Garage, 2200 E. Kenwood Boulevard, Milwaukee
