By the year 2100, the Inland Empire could become six to nine degrees warmer, increasing the likelihood of wildfires in many areas. A projected decline in rainfall may further exacerbate the situation.
On January 9, 2020, Southern California Public Radio station KPCC science reporter Jacob Margolis will moderate the panel discussion “Hotter, Drier, and on Fire: Will the IE Still Be Livable in 2100?” from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the University of Redlands’ Glenn Wallichs Theatre. Tim Krantz, University of Redlands professor of environmental studies, will be among the featured panelists.
This event is free and open to the public. The community is encouraged to submit questions at http://tiny.cc/KPCCsubmit
The community can also watch the event through a live stream on SCPR.org or on the KPCC In Person Facebook page. —Jennifer
