Learn More About Climate gives Colorado answers

Jim White is one of several CU-Boulder climate scientists featured in videos and other media for a new website called LearnMoreAboutClimate.colorado.edu. The site is designed to engage citizens from across Colorado--from middle school to community leaders--in learning more about climate and to encourage them to make lifestyle changes that help us be more sustainable and adaptable, contributing to the health of our state and planet. CU-Boulder is a global leader in energy and climate change research and environmental stewardship and is, thus, uniquely positioned to provide leadership in addressing this issue at the local level.

The site was launched by CU-Boulder's Office for University Outreach in the Division of Continuing Education and Professional Studies. Site development was in partnership with INSTAAR and several other CU-Boulder institutes and departments.
