Climate Change Talk at the Red Barn

The Wenatchee River Institute will host a climate change talk with University of Washington Senior Research Scientist Sarah Doherty on Thursday, Oct. 26 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

The doors open at 6:30 p.m. for a community social with beer and wine available for purchase.

“There’s a lot more going on in the skies that’s affecting climate than just increasing CO2,” the event page states. “Come hear about some surprising aspects of climate change from local atmospheric scientist Sarah Doherty.”

“Sarah will talk about how particles in the atmosphere, like smoke from fires and pollution from engines and industrial activities, are affecting our climate, how their influence on climate differs from that of greenhouse gasses like CO2, and how we might leverage these effects to reduce global warming and the negative impacts of climate change.”

Wenatchee River Institute Red Barn events are now hybrid and can be joined in person or on livestream.

The event is free with a donation basket at the door.
