Hot summers, strong winds, and potential freezes are common enough in Las Cruces, but will they become more frequent in the future? What does the community need to plan for so that our community continues to thrive?
Learn the answer to these questions and more at a public presentation titled: How will Climate Change Impact Las Cruces? on April 27, 2016 from 6:30 to 8 pm at the City Hall Council Chambers, 700 North Main.
Climatologists, UA Gregg Garfin and NMSU David DuBois from the Climate Assessment for the Southwest (CLIMAS) and Karen MacClune from Institute for Social and Environmental Transition-International, will share climate modeling data specifically generated about Las Cruces and discuss how this information can impact our planning.
Although future forecasts may not always be what we want to hear, planning and preparation helps Las Cruces be ready for any change. Climate can impact health, building and landscaping decisions, agriculture, and most importantly, our children’s future.
This event is hosted by the City of Las Cruces Sustainability Office and funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
