Media Preview: Friday, June 25 at 10am
Overview: The Field Museum’s special summer exhibition, Climate Change, explores the impact of climate change and its effects on our oceans, atmosphere, land, and societies. Discover how even small, individual changes add up quickly to help reduce global warming and learn about alternative energy sources that can eliminate our dependency on fossil fuels. Examine the inside of a pebble-bed nuclear reactor, see how the sun’s energy can be used through new types of solar panels, and learn how carbon dioxide may someday be captured and buried underground. Learn how a combination of efforts – individual, societal, and governmental – can make an impact in reducing climate change.
