Overview

This session will provide an overview of the latest scientific findings on how a warming planet is changing the regional climates of Alaska. Results of climate modeling will be shared explaining the type and degree of risk faced by Alaska’s communities. A new planning tool is proposed to enable communities throughout Alaska to take precautions against the occurrence of extreme weather events and prepare for an unknown and potentially unsettling future.
