A local climate impact model for the San Francisco Bay Area

Posted by Lauren Hertel on Wednesday, October 17 2012


Lisa Micheli and Healy Hamilton, two leading mid-career scientist-entrepreneurs formerly with the California Academy of Sciences, developed a model that shows the potential impacts of climate change on biodiversity and sea-level rise in Northern California.

Their project seeks to make climate change impacts tangible, educate local communities about the link between human behavior and climate change, empower individuals, and motivate action to decrease greenhouse gas emissions locally.
