To present scientifically based information on climate change to promote understanding and awareness of the problem and how we can address it.

Connection to SOCAN Mission

It is anticipated that this project will promote awareness and understanding about the causes and consequences of climate change through delivery of informed presentations employing the most current science on various aspects of climate change, its causes, consequences, and counters.

Background Information

Delivering presentations on various aspects of climate change is a critically important activity offered by SOCAN. We have developed presentation slide sets that can be shared.

By offering schools, educational institutions, community and service groups informed presentations and programs on Climate Change, SOCAN can promote among area residents; a greater understanding of the basic science of climate change; its causes and consequences, regionally, nationally, and globally; and what we can do to address the problem.  Addressing climate change involves both preparing for the consequences that are inevitable and reducing its causes so as to reduce the severity of future impacts.
