Excessive heat waves. Intense rainfall. Rising seas.
Our climate is changing. Greenhouse gas emissions are accelerating. Extreme weather events are becoming more frequent.
What does a changing climate mean for a person, a community, or a region?
How can we prepare for, adapt to, or improve our resilience to these new climate normals?
The Extreme Weather E-Forum addresses these questions and more through guided research and peer-to-peer blogging. Created especially for high school environmental science and biology students, the E-forum provides an opportunity to investigate the relationship between climate and extreme weather and think more critically about what it means to become resilient. Students can blog with classrooms across Pennsylvania and beyond to raise awareness about preparing for extreme weather events, share lessons learned, and inspire a community approach to improving resilience.
