NMSU Climate Change Education Seminar Series to be held Nov. 7

New Mexico State University will host its third presentation of the NMSU Climate Change Education Seminar Series known as NMSUCCESS. The presentation will begin at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7, at the Rio Grande Theatre located in the downtown mall at 211 N. Main St.


The presentation titled The Three Ss of Climate Change: Simple, Serious and Solvable, will outline the dynamics of climate change, the ramifications of climate change across the social, economic, political and environmental landscape, and steps the global community can take to address this crisis.

A recent report issued by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change shows that the world will face increasingly catastrophic impacts from climate change if the global community, including the U.S., does not take drastic steps to curb greenhouse gas emissions, said Lara Prihodko, college associate professor in the Department of Animal and Range Sciences in the College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences.

Headlining at this presentation is Scott Denning, Monfort Professor of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University. His research has included extensive field work in the great north woods of Wisconsin, the farms of Iowa and the Amazon rainforest. Denning is known for engaging audiences on the subject of climate change.

NMSUCCESS, which is an eight-part series of presentations that began in the fall of 2018 and will continue throughout the spring semester, is led by experts of different fields all impacted by climate change. Prihodko hopes this series ensures the local community remains informed and engaged in the effort to preserve a stable future for generations to come.
