"Will the Mongolian Steppe Step up to Climate Change?"

September 18, 2019

Faculty and students from across the University of Pennsylvania unite in a series of 1.5 Minute Climate Lectures to sound the alarm about the climate emergency, to call for large-scale climate action, and to share a vision of constructive and comprehensive response. The maximum amount the average temperature can rise in order to avoid the worst consequences of global warming is 1.5°C. We’re already past 1°C.
