Global warming and pandemics are arguably existential global threats and both require aggressive international action, institutional leadership, structural reform, and behavior change to address. Yet these challenges have fundamental differences.

So, can the response to the novel coronavirus teach us anything about dealing with climate change? Or will the disease derail progress in curbing emissions? And what are lockdowns teaching scientists about our planet's systems?

The next enthralling episode in the Climate Science on Tap series highlights these contemporary crises facing our society. Join us for thought-provoking presentations and Q&A. We bet it’s the most interesting thing you can do while sheltering in place!
