OMSI Science Pub The 22nd Century Survival Project with CEOAS faculty members in geography, Jamon Van Den Hoek, James R. Watson, and David Wrathall. The 22nd Century has the potential to hinder if not outright eliminate society and civilization. Climate change and new technologies are fostering changes to our individual and collective experiences at a pace unseen before. Artificial intelligence, pandemics, antimicrobial resistance, and climate change all bring risks that have global reach and that can have deep and long-lasting local impacts. Many of these risks can only be addressed through collective action. These are the hallmarks of the Anthropocene – the age of dominant human influence on the Earth.

OSU Cascades Science Pub The Great Outdoors - Climate Change Impacts Around (the) Bend
Larger and more frequent wildland fires, smoke severe enough to threaten air quality, and drought are signs of how climate change is changing the U.S. West. But how will a changing climate impact us here in Central Oregon? Join OSU climatologist Larry O’Neill to understand how a continuing drought and shrinking snowpack might impact future water availability issues, how weather patterns may increase rain in the region, and how temperatures and lightning storms may shape the severity of future wildfires.
