Climate change and its consequences are "the new abnormal." CLAS-supported research looks at two possible effects.
In 2018, two Berkeley graduate students supported by CLAS and the Tinker Foundation looked at climate change from different perspectives unified by a common theme: this “new abnormal” is one of devastating extremes. From macro variables like the strength of hurricanes and the persistence of drought, they examine effects on a smaller level, in the daily lives of farmers in the Caribbean and Central America and frogs in the Andes. In both cases, the implications span the planet.
