Global Warming: Clear And Present?
Groton - For many scientists, the question is no longer whether there is evidence of global warming, but how much the climate has changed, how the environment is being altered and how to persuade the public that dramatic changes are already happening in their own back yards and beaches.
A coalition of the state's science centers has taken on the responsibility of helping to get those messages out, beginning with a forum on Tuesday at the University of Connecticut's Avery Point campus. The Connecticut Science Center Collaborative is also planning a series of programs at member institutions to educate the public about how global warming is impacting the local environment.
This is not 50 or 100 years down the road, said Adam Markham, executive director of Clean Air Cool Planet, an environmental advocacy organization based in Portsmouth, N.H., that helped host the event. There have been changes already.
