What do we think about Tahoe climate?

Long, warm summer days and crisp, cold winter nights…

Climate change is a big part of the conversation here in Tahoe South. Some of us can’t wait for the epic snowstorm of the season, while others are counting down to the first beach day of the summer. But those days seem to vary every year. 

In fact, 2012 was the warmest year on record in the US. Here, it felt like we went from winter to summer, with very little spring in between. So, what does that mean for the future of the Sierras? 

Come find out with us this Thursday, January 10 at Tahoe South’s Operation Sierra Storm Meteorologist Conference.

Keynote speaker Chris Field, is a leader of the 2007 Nobel Prize-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. He’s the director of the Department of Global Ecology, Carnegie Institution for Science, at Stanford University and a 2009 Heinz Award recipient, recognizing extraordinary environmental achievement. 

In addition to a question and answer period, Field’s presentation will include: 

  • What does it mean that 2012 was the warmest year on record for the U.S.?
  • If we decide to act on climate change, how long until we see the effects?
  • What are the key vulnerabilities for the sierras, for California, for the U.S.?
