PAXCON imageJoin colleagues from across the Patuxent River Watershed every Thursday between October 29 and November 19 for weekly talks on one of four topics that the community has listed as most interesting: Science Communication, Climate Change, Streams, and Wetlands.

The planning committee is finalizing the speaker schedule and will send registration information for these webinars by the end of September.

PAXCON planners are always looking to grow the network of people interested in learning more about the Patuxent River and look forward to connecting virtually in the coming weeks!

Fall Speaker Series: Climate Change in the Chesapeake

About this session: As sea level rises, temperatures warm, and precipitation patterns change, it is imperative that we protect land and natural resources across the Delmarva Peninsula. Jim Bass, Coastal Resilience Program Manager at Eastern Shore Land Conservancy (ESLC), will discuss the role of land conservation in the region’s climate adaptation work, which forms the cornerstone of ESLC’s newest and largest initiative: Delmarva Oasis.

About the series: With climate change a global reality, the Chesapeake is one of the most vulnerable areas to warming temperatures, rising sea levels, and increased storm intensities. This series explores the connection between science and culture, looking at how communities are adapting to build climate resilience.

Join us for a Countdown to the Future presentation, part of a worldwide, 24-hour conversation to explore the future we want and how we get there.

Climate Change is at the center of every other issue we face: social upheaval, ocean health, food supply, population growth, public health, pollution, habitat loss, species extinction, and financial viability.

Now is the time to talk about what comes next.

Inside ScienceMeeting the shock and awe of extreme floods, droughts, storms, and fires from California and the Mississippi to Venice and the Caribbean calls for plans and action. As the planet faces changes in climate and increased extreme weather events, adaptation is higher than ever before on the global agenda.

As these events unfold, scientists and policy makers alike are challenged with making choices about disaster risk reduction and securing opportunities for long-term sustainability. Countries, communities, and businesses are demanding access to authoritative, usable scientific and risk-assessment information for making both immediate and long-term decisions in the face of changing weather and climate trends and extremes.

Roger S. Pulwarty, the senior scientist in the physical sciences division at NOAA’s Earth System Research Laboratory, brings his research, practice and perspectives to address these issues. What are the ongoing and projected risks? What can we learn from significant weather events across the globe? What are the options, challenges, and opportunities for adapting to, and through, changing climates? What information can be shared regionally and locally to support smart practices and decision-making? What is needed to successfully manage climate-related risk across economies, ecosystems, and communities?

This is a presentation of the Smithsonian Institution’s Inside Science series.

The final presentation in a series of presentations on Climate & Sustainability by Sara Via, Ph.D., Professor, University of Maryland.

Because food, individual transportation and residential energy use cause at least 30% of US carbon emissions, individuals can make a difference when it comes to climate change! In this webinar, Dr. Via will discuss five ways to lower your carbon footprint by reducing residential energy use, covering the remaining power needs with renewables even if you don’t have a suitable roof, reducing miles traveled in your car and increasing miles per gallon, reducing food waste, and adopting a mostly plant-based diet. Many of these actions are free or low cost to implement and most will save you money.

Dr. Via was one of the speakers at our Climate Change and Your Food Supply talk last July. Read more.

smithsonian environmental research centerPresented by the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center. Tens of millions of Americans make their homes in coastal cities. How these cities adapt to rising seas will determine their futures in the 21st century. Three experts from cities on the East and West Coasts of the United States will share stories and ideas about how coastal communities can build resiliently in the face of sea level rise. Join for an evening of cross-country dialogue, with built-in time for audience questions.
