Mitigate, Adapt, or Suffer: Living With Climate Change

Join Dr. Mermaid on a guided tour of the basic science behind earth’s climate, the drivers of climate change, and the range of responses available to us on a personal and cultural level: mitigation, adaptation, and suffering. No prior knowledge is required – just an interest in the world around you.

Dr. Debra Tillinger is a climate change educator at the American Museum of Natural History and a physics professor at Marymount Manhattan College. As her alter ego, Dr. Mermaid, she has also taught at parties, festivals, and Brooklyn’s annual Mermaid Lagoon.
