On Tuesday, November 19 at 7:00 p.m. at our library, the Chocorua Lake Conservancy will host a talk, “Climate Change in New England: From Science to Solutions,” with Professor Cameron Wake from the University of New Hampshire.

Climate changes. It always has and always will. However, an extensive body of scientific evidence shows that human activities are now the primary force driving change in the Earth’s climate system. Over the past six decades, New England’s climate has been getting warmer and wetter, extreme precipitation events have increased dramatically, and sea levels continue to rise. These trends are very likely to continue, with summertime drought also becoming more frequent.
