Title: Climate Change: Adaption, Mitigation, and Technological Solutions
Date: Tuesday, February 20, 2018
Time: 12:00 PM Eastern Standard Time
Duration: One Hour
Climate change is a growing concern. Wildfires raging on the West Coast, monstrous hurricanes churning across the Caribbean, rising sea levels… the vast majority of scientists agree that global warming is a factor in these disasters.
At MIT, we know climate change is a big problem. This webinar aims to highlight possible solutions which will combat the effects of global warming. The goal is also to help sort hype from reality and acknowledge that there are many differing views about the long-term effects of how climate change will affect our planet and our lives.
In this one-hour virtual course, participants will learn from MIT faculty expert, Professor Dan Cziczo about:
Will the earth warm more than 2 degrees? If so, how do we project the consequences? Which options are most likely to halt predicted change?

Daniel Cziczo is an Associate Professor of Atmospheric Chemistry in Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences and Civil and Environmental Engineering at MIT. The major focus of his research is the interrelationship of particulate matter and cloud formation. His research utilizes laboratory and field studies to elucidate how small particles interact with water vapor to form droplets and ice crystals which are important players in the Earth’s climate system. Experiments include using small cloud chambers in the laboratory to mimic atmospheric conditions that lead to cloud formation and observing clouds in situ from remote mountaintop sites or through the use of research aircraft.
