Extinction Rebellion Vermont is proud to present Episode 2 of our "Rated XR" Local Climate Series, an online media discussion on the climate crisis and what we Vermonters can do about it, on Thursday, April 15. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session with attendees. "The Climate Consensus – Creating a Multi-Institution Outreach Network" will be presented by Dr. Janel Hanrahan, Associate Professor and Chair of Atmospheric Sciences at Northern Vermont University-Lyndon. She will describe recent efforts to create a climate outreach network that aims to promote more effective dialog between geoscientists and the public. Dr. Hanrahan earned her M.S. and PhD in Mathematics at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. As a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Alberta, she researched extreme rainfall and climate change. Her current research aims to understand how human-caused climate change influences extreme weather. As the founder and director of The Climate Consensus, Dr. Hanrahan works with students to improve climate change literacy among the general public by promoting effective dialog between these groups.
