Pre-Release Preview & Discussion: DECODING THE WEATHER MACHINE | Harvard University Center for the Environment

Wednesday, April 4, 2018 – Pre-Release Preview & Discussion: Decoding the Weather Machine

The Harvard University Center for the Environment and the WGBH Science Series NOVA host a special sneak preview event featuring clips from upcoming NOVA film, Decoding the Weather Machine, followed by a panel discussion with Paula S. Apsell, NOVA Senior Executive Producer; Daniel Schrag, Harvard University; Ralph Keeling, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego; James McCarthy, Harvard University; Doug Hamilton, Writer, Producer, and Director of Decoding the Weather Machine; and Caitlin Saks, Co-Producer of Decoding the Weather Machine and Science Editor for NOVA.

Disastrous hurricanes. Widespread droughts and wildfires. Withering heat. Extreme rainfall. It is hard not to conclude that something’s up with the weather, and many scientists agree. It’s the result of the weather machine itself—our climate—changing, becoming hotter and more erratic. In this documentary, NOVA will cut through the confusion around climate change. Why do scientists overwhelmingly agree that our climate is changing, and that human activity is causing it? How and when will it affect us through the weather we experience? And what will it take to bend the trajectory of planetary warming toward more benign outcomes? Join scientists around the world on a quest to better understand the workings of the weather and climate machine we call Earth, and discover how we can be resilient—even thrive—in the face of enormous change.
