Predicting the Perils of Climate Change


Greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide have increased rapidly in the atmosphere, altering the Earth's climate; "Climate Change" explains how the resulting global wanning could stress human societies and damage ecosystems by causing sea levels to rise, increasing the incidence of drought and intense storms, drastically raising temperatures over areas of land and ocean surfaces, and bringing additional changes to the world around us. To facilitate a better understanding of how global warming can be addressed, the exhibition presents displays and explanations of some of the leading examples of alternative energy sources, including the glistening mirrors of a solar collector, the many metallic spheres in the cut-away core of a pebble-bed nuclear reactor, and a 15-foot segment of a wind turbine blade.
