On Sunday, July 8th, thirteen students from the University of California Santa Cruz will be presenting a live debate on climate change at the Beringia Center. Drawing from their backgrounds in ecology and environmental change and from their experiences during a three-week tour of Yukon and Northwest Territories, the students will present formal arguments about whether the bad aspects of global warming outweigh the potential benefits, with particular emphasis on how the Yukon is projected to change. Come to be entertained, to hear the latest science, and to be the judge of which side wins!
