University of Michigan’s forum on climate change is shaping up to be the biggest of the coming year.
Its members are expected to make presentations in Washington, D.C., on Friday about their findings about the effects of climate change on the health of the planet and how to reduce the impacts.
The forum will focus on the topic of how to deal with climate change in a way that will minimize the effects on the human race.
That is not a new challenge for scientists, but this year’s forum is expected to be even more of a challenge.
In addition to a wide range of topics related to climate change, there is a focus on what the world can do about it.
For instance, one panelist, University of Washington climate scientist Brian Schulman, is expected on Thursday to offer an overview of how the science is informing how the U.S. should adapt to climate impacts.
This year’s panel will include Dr. David Alpert, a former dean of the U of M’s College of Medicine; the head of the climate change division of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration; and the chairman of the American Lung Association’s Board of Directors, Dr. Steven Glickman.
The forum is open to anyone who wants to attend, but its organizers say that only registered students can participate.
The conference is scheduled to run from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.ms. in the conference hall at the University of the District of Columbia.
It will be followed by a two-hour lecture series, followed by an open discussion, and a Q&A session.
There is also a video conferencing facility that will provide a forum for people to record their own presentations.
The event will be broadcast live on the university’s Facebook page.
