Age Group(s): General Audience
Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Time: 8:00 PM
Join scientists around the world on a quest to better understand the workings of the weather and climate machine we call Earth, and discover how we can be resilient — and even thrive — in the face of enormous change.
Watch the NOVA video Decoding the Weather Machine. Then attend a community discussion to discuss the video and climate change.

About the Video
Disastrous hurricanes. Widespread droughts and wildfires. Withering heat. Extreme rainfall. It is hard not to conclude that something’s up with the weather, and many scientists agree. It’s the result of the weather machine itself—our climate—changing, becoming hotter and more erratic.
In this two-hour documentary, NOVA will cut through the confusion around climate change. Why do scientists overwhelmingly agree that our climate is changing, and that human activity is causing it? How and when will it affect us through the weather we experience? And what will it take to bend the trajectory of planetary warming toward more benign outcomes?
