Cultural Burning and the Art of Not Fighting Fire
Research is happening everywhere — in the air, at sea, and on land — to help the world address the effects of climate change.
Beginning with the discovery of the greenhouse effect more than fifty years ago, scientists are helping to explain how humans contribute to climate change. They are also revealing the many impacts of rising temperatures on the atmosphere and environment. Air pollution, ocean acidification, sea level rise, drought, species extinction and extreme weather events are some of the most pressing and challenging global issues of our time.
UC Davis is applying its collective strengths in science, engineering, art and design to the problem of climate change and a warming planet. Science & Climate highlights those efforts, and that of the research community, through storytelling, visuals and clear scientific explanations, to help better meet this global challenge.
