August 25 - ASU Climate Change Town Hall
Since ancient times, civilizations have struggled to control water, wringing every drop out of this precious resource. These days, freshwater resources are threatened by a rising population and the effects of climate change.
To explore these issues, NBC Learn produced a dynamic event where a panel of scientists and policymakers discussed how shifting climate patterns are stressing our freshwater resources and how we can develop better, more sustainable water practices. We streamed the event live here on nbclearn.com and it will be broadcast nationally this fall on The Weather Channel.
