UC Davis Climate Scientist: "We're A Bit Behind Where We Need To Be"

APR 18, 2017

Advisers for Donald Trump are urging the president to maintain the United States' commitment set forth in the Paris climate accord, a departure from one of his key campaign promises. On Thursday, a community discussion in Incline Village looks into the current state of global climate change and the impact those policies have on curbing potential threats.

Reno Public Radio’s Noah Glick chatted with Benjamin Houlton, the environmental scientist behind this event to learn more.

KUNR: Let’s start with the obvious question. Where do we stand with climate change? What’s the current state of the globe?

Houlton: I think what we should be thinking about is that there’s a lot of risk with the way the climate system’s changing and how we’re seeing this greenhouse gases continue to rise globally. We need to start managing this risk the way we would manage any risk in our lives.

The more we understand about global climate change, the greater we can come together. Then we can start to reduce the risk associated with this problem. So it’s really bringing people together from all these different nations, scientists and relying on natural ecosystems to help us out a little bit.
