Have you seen climate change? The signs of global warming (its impacts, causes and potential solutions) are all around us – from extreme weather to monster homes, from golf carts to backyard chickens. Discover the surprising ways we conceal, overlook, and ignore the evidence before our eyes. Learn how we can use visual media – from photo-albums to video games – to view our communities through a new climate change lens. Peek into a modern crystal ball to see what the future looks like in a low-carbon world. Let BC author and scientist Dr. Stephen Sheppard take you on an eye-opening journey into the future and around the block, drawing on his new book “Visualizing Climate Change”.
