Degrees of Change (Pt. 1)


Science Friday Is Measuring ‘Degrees Of Change’—And We Need Your Help

Climate change is happening. Our new series ‘Degrees Of Change’ explores how we’re adapting to it.

The first chapter of the new SciFri series Degrees of Change takes a look at how cities around the world are taming floodwaters, and turning them into freshwater resources. Plus, why scientists have long been drawn to creative takes on science—and why creativity is central to scientific thought.

We’ll bring you scientists studying climate change first-hand, and we’ll talk with journalists and politicians around the country to understand climate policy solutions near you, and nationwide. Climate change is a global problem that impacts local communities differently. That’s why we’ll look to you to help direct our coverage. What have you done to reduce your impact on climate change? Is your community tackling the problem head on, or struggling to take action?

Here’s how you can get involved.
