Artic Weather Nexus

This interactive event will show the public how changes in the Arctic, which has lost 80% of its ice since 1979, are directly causing extreme weather and temperature increases in the mid-latitudes like the United States. Arctic ice loss has now been attributed to the Nor'easter storms, drought in California, wildfires, and up to 1/2 of temperature rise. We'll help explain this phenomenon and introduce Ice911's solution for restoring lost Arctic ice in a fun interactive event with refreshments.
