Transcript
NY’s Climate is Already Changing
Since 1970:
• Global annual average temp. up nearly 1° F
• U.S. annual average temp. up 1.8° F
• NY annual average temp. up nearly 2° F
• NY winter temperatures almost 5° F warmer
Continued Climate Change
Impacts in NYS

Upcoming Training Materials for
Educators
 2011 – Webinars – Stay Tuned
 Climate Change Science
 FAQs/Common Climate Change Misconceptions
 How to Communicate about Climate Change
 Climate Change Ag Impacts
 Materials for the public posted to the website
 How can we collectively incorporate climate change
information into existing extension programs (Ag, Master
Gardener curriculum, 4-H, nutrition, etc)?
Research & Funding Opportunities
 Submitted Smith Lever proposal with David Wolfe to
develop climate change extension materials – Dec 2010
 Cornell Water Resource Institute Faculty Grant with
Shorna Allred – Attitudes of Climate Change Adaptation of
Municipal Officials in the Hudson Valley
 Submitted NYSERDA Climate Smart Communities Proposal
– April 2011, including extension outreach on Long Island,
Capitol and Hudson Valley
Climate Change Stories Project
 Planning to purchase several video flip cameras
 Capture regular people (farmers, municipal officials,
natural resource managers) talking about the climate
changes they have seen over time/are currently
experiencing
 Short video clips will be posted to website
 Developing video script
 Let us know if you are interested!
