A new UNL report titled “Understanding and Assessing Climate Change: Implications for Nebraska,” will be the focus of Sept. 25’s Heuermann Lecture.
The event is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. at the Nebraska Innovation Campus Conference Center, 2021 Innovation Drive.
The report evaluates and summarizes existing scientific literature related to climate change and offers projections for how that change is likely to affect Nebraska’s climate. The lecture will feature a panel discussion moderated by Donald Wilhite of the School of Natural Resources.
The report’s executive summary is available here. The full report will be posted at the same URL late this afternoon (Sept. 25).
On Sept. 24, IANR Vice Chancellor Ronnie Green penned an Omaha World-Herald guest editorial about the report. “Thursday is a red-letter day in the ongoing public discussion about climate change,” Green wrote. ” … As we plan for the next 100 years, a thorough understanding of our changing climate is needed.”
