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. Governor Jerry Brown has since declared a drought state of emergency as the unprecedented dry spell has stretched into 2014. Join paleoclimatologist B. Lynn Ingram and Frances Malamud-Roam, co-authors of The West without Water, for a presentation and 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. A book signing follows the presentation.
B. Lynn Ingram, Professor of Earth & Planetary Science
