Uncover the natural evidence for climate change, and examine its impact on our
atmosphere, oceans, land, and societies. Discover how even small changes can add
up to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and find out more about our best hopes
for alternative energy sources. Take a moment to explore more about Climate Change
at The Field Museum and the science behind the exhibition.
Examine one of the most urgent scientific and social issues of the 21st Century in the exhibition Climate Change, at The Field Museum from June 25 through November 28, 2010. You'll discover the science behind the issues and explore the implications should climate change continue unchecked.
Through interactive stations and videos, as well as dioramas conveying the latest research, Climate Change presents evidence that human activity over the past 300 years has dramatically altered the natural world.
You'll see how the resulting changes affect our planet, causing sea levels to rise, increasing drought and storms, damaging habitats for wildlife, and stressing human societies around the globe.
But all is not lost, the exhibition also poses solutions, illustrating how we can move away from dependence on fossil fuels toward new energy technologies, including solar, wind, nuclear, and other power sources.
So come learn how you can contribute to a global resolution through simple lifestyle changes that protect our planet for future generations—plan your visit today!
