If Global Warming Exists, Why Is It So Cold?

The world is warming, so why is the Midwest suffering record cold temperatures? How is global warming impacting oceans? What’s the connection between wildfires and climate change?

Climate science is complex, vast and often difficult to understand. We’ll explain the fundamental basics you’ll need to answer friends and family who ask about climate change—or question if it’s even happening.

Join us for climate science 101 with climate communications guru David Fenton and science experts Ben Santer and Katharine Mach, who will debunk common myths that arise from distortions of accepted science.
