Details

Climate change affects the entire planet, but what the impacts look like vary geographically. What will it look like here in Massachusetts, what is being done about it, and how can we help?

This month, please join us for a special presentation about projections for climate change in Massachusetts over the next century and how we can respond to it led by Shaina Rogstad. We will discuss current Massachusetts legislative action that aims to combat the climate crisis, and what we can do as individuals to support and expand it. Shaina is a Ph.D Candidate at UMass Amherst in the Department of Geosciences. Her research focuses on using global climate modeling to determine how the climate system as a whole might respond to changes in the Antarctic Ice Sheet (AIS).

We generally take a few minutes at the beginning of each monthly meeting to plan upcoming MA.ASH community building efforts and events. The presentations and general discussions afterwards give members a chance to discuss relevant topics, current events, and explore new ideas.

The general public is welcome to attend.
