Event Description

The Commonwealth Club is hosting at the Lafayette Library on Tuesday, March 11th at 6:30pm with paleoclimatologists B. Lynn Ingram and Frances Malamud-Roam of UC Berkeley.  In 2013, California suffered its driest calendar year on record. Wildfires raged across the state – from the massive Rim Fire in Yosemite to the flames that engulfed Big Sur – and Governor Brown has since declared a drought state of emergency as the unprecedented dry spell has stretched into 2014. In their book, The West Without Water, Ingram and Malamud-Roam discuss how 2014 potentially could be the driest water year we’ve had in 500 years. Join us for a discussion on California’s current water crisis, the region’s climatic past and predictions about the future of climate change and its effect on water resources.
