 In recent years the frequency and intensity of storms in our area has been on the rise, and as we are still in the midst of clean-up from Hurricane Sandy, climate change and its effect on sea level rise is top of mind. Find out what climate change is, what its effects are on our oceans and rivers, and the impacts of extreme weather in our local communities.
* Andy Revkin, Senior Fellow for Environmental Understanding at Pace University's Academy for Applied Environmental Studies, who will give a broad overview of climate change, rising oceans, and their possible impact on New York State.  
* Adam Whelchel, Ph.D. Director of Science at The Nature Conservancy/Connecticut Chapter, who will speak about how sea level rise may impact Long Island Sound. 
* Mark Lowery, Climate Policy Analyst in the office of Climate Change at New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, who will talk about the sea level rise along the Hudson River and how New York State can respond to it.  
A panel discussion with a question-and-answer session will follow the formal presentations.
Registration begins at 8:30 a.m.; the program begins at 8:45 a.m.
