LA’s Climate Future

When we hear about polar ice caps melting, it sounds dangerous but also distant. The damage to our planet’s ecosystem caused by increasing levels of carbon dioxide is real, but we don’t see it.

It’s hard for people to take climate change seriously because it’s not immediately and directly affecting our lives, YET.

In order to give people a taste of what might happen when the consequences of global warming hit home, UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability presents an in depth analysis of what LA’s climate could look like, if global warming continues in the direction it is going.

With sea levels rising, and temperatures increasing as well, what will the 3.82 million residents of Los Angeles have to look forward to?

Find out in “LA’s Climate Future: What’s Coming and What Choices We Face” as UCLA professor Alex Hall presents his high resolution predictions of what happens when the effects of climate change hit LA.
