Dr. Bruce Maxwell talks about how climate change affects you
Jan 23, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Bruce Maxwell is one of the lead authors of the 2017 Montana Climate Assessment (MCA). The Montana Climate Assessment is a report prepared by experts at the direction of Governor Steve Bullock. The purpose of the report was to analyze the predicted effects of climate change on Montana, with region-specific predictions.
Dr. Maxwell is a Professor in the Department of Land Resources and Environmental Science at Montana State University, specializing in agroecology, invasive plant ecology, and weed biology. His contributions to the MCA focused on the effects of global warming on agriculture in Montana. Dr. Maxwell will describe the findings of the MCA and will update those findings with more recent information. Understanding the range of likely results of global warming should help Bitterroot Valley residents adjust their farming, gardening, forestry, and business practices accordingly. BCAG particularly invites the attendance and participation of everyone in our community working in fields that are directly impacted by the Montana Climate Assessment findings. Dr. Maxwell especially encourages young people to attend his talk, since their lives will be significantly affected by climate change.
The talk will be free and open to the public.
