Science Talk: Tropical Forests and Climate Change

Join us tomorrow night, June 12, 7:30 PM, at BLACK MARKET MOTO SALOON in charlottesville to hear all about the science of rain forests, part of Science Strait Up.

Description from Science Strait Up: “How are tropical forests and climate change linked?  U.Va. Environmental Sciences professor Deborah Lawrence discusses the long history of forest clearing and how it has affected the earth’s atmosphere over the past 8,000 years.  Forests are important for taking up carbon, but growth and productivity limit how much they can hold.  Come learn about the science behind tropical forests, carbon, and our atmosphere, and why it matters.”

Resiliency and Sustainability are two terms we have begun to hear very often especially in building circles, but resiliency often gets replaced with redundancy. has a lot to say about the topic, so I’ll let them be your guide:
