MENLO PARK, Calif. Decisions made by the global community about emissions will directly impact the future of the western United States. On March 22nd, Tom Suchanek, U.S. Geological Survey climate change coordinator, will discuss how increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide might affect human land-use and environmental systems in California and the Bay Area. His talk will also answer questions about how rising sea levels will likely affect our coastal areas, and what the Sierra Nevada snowpack, sensitive fire regimes, and regional species distribution might look like in future generations.
