Yavapai College: OLLI Climate Change Discussion

Sedona AZ – Climate Change is already affecting human wellbeing in almost all parts of the Earth, and certainly here in Arizona as well. Smaller climate pressures like rising temperatures have already lead to large numbers of climate migrants, and larger climate pressures are now also leading to more and more climate refugees in our region. Current pressures and future projections will be discussed.
