A Traveling Climate Exhibit
Take a journey through climate change with a visit to the traveling exhibition, Real People, Real Climate, Real Changes. Bring your family and friends, and learn together how climate is changing and how it’s affecting people’s lives around the country and around the world.
Real People, Real Climate, Real Changes was developed by the National Center for Atmospheric Research and the UCAR Center for Science Education to help share the science of climate change and how it impacts people’s lives. The exhibit is traveling around the country. Follow the link at the bottom of this page to learn more about requesting the exhibit.
In the exhibit, you’ll learn how people are affected by climate change – from Midwest farmers to coastal residents and urban dwellers. Everyone is a climate stakeholder. You’ll also learn about the people who are finding solutions to climate change, and you’ll get ideas of how to take action to help address climate change.
Learn the scientific evidence that confirms that the climate is changing today because of our actions. Climate has changed over the history of our planet, but it is warming at a much faster rate than in the past, which is leaving us vulnerable. In the exhibit, you’ll find out what can be done to slow climate change. From global solutions to your individual actions - it all makes a difference.
The impacts of climate change are becoming more apparent each year as warming temperatures affect other parts of our climate, such as rain and snowfall. Changes in climate are causing sea levels to rise. Some areas are becoming more prone to drought and heat waves. Some areas are becoming more prone to intense rainstorms and the flash flooding they can cause.
