The Impacts of Climate Change: Exploring the Latest Assessment Report, September 6

Edmund Perfect, professor in the UT Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences will present “The Impacts of Climate Change: Exploring the Latest Assessment Report” Friday, September 6.

The Fourth National Climate Assessment, released in November 2018, is a comprehensive and authoritative report on climate change and its predicted effects on the United States. In spring 2019, Professor Perfect taught an undergraduate seminar focused on this report. Drawing on material covered in that course, Perfect will explore the impacts and risks of climate change for the United States in general and for East Tennessee in particular.

The UT Science Forum takes place Friday, Sept. 6 from noon to 1 p.m. in the Thompson-Boling Arena Cafe (located at 1600 Phillip Fulmer Way), Room A.

Guests are encouraged to bring their lunch or purchase it from the arena. Each presentation is followed by a Q&A. The event is free and open to the public.

We have temporary parking passes available for our guests who do not have UT parking passes. An RSVP is required for the pass. To request a pass, please email Amanda Womac.
