Stu Ostro of Weather Channel and Rutgers scientist Jennifer Francis to address June 6 Washington, D.C., presentation at World Wildlife Fund headquarters.
A prominent meteorologist from The Weather Channel and a high regarded Rutgers University climate researcher specializing in the Arctic will lead a June 6 one-hour World Wildlife Fund/Climate Desk presentation in Washington, D.C.
Weather Channel senior meteorologist Stu Ostro and Rutgers Professor Jennifer Francis are to address their conclusions that the impacts of the warming climate are affecting atmospheric circulation and the “topsy-turvy” weather patterns of the past few years.
“We don’t know — yet — what the next extreme manifestations of these large-scale changes in weather patterns will be,” the two host groups say in announcing the seminar, which is to be Webcast live. They warn that “we had better be getting ready for them — because this isn’t your grandparent’s Planet Earth any longer.”
The program — “Going to Extremes: The Alarming Science Behind Climate Change’s Increasingly Wild Weather” — is open to the public and will be held at WWF’s Washington, D.C., headquarters at 1250 24th Street, N.W., in Washington, beginning at 4:30 p.m. EDT. It is to be moderated by science writer Chris Mooney. Online registration is available at the WWF website.
