Due to unforeseen circumstances, this event is being postponed to a later date. We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to being in touch as soon as the event is rescheduled. Thank you for your understanding.

By the year 2100, the Inland Deserts region could be eight to 14 degrees hotter, rainfall could decline by up to six inches, and the likeliness of wildfires could increase by up to two times in some parts.

But it’s not going to take until 2100 to feel those impacts. San Bernardino and Riverside counties are home to more than 4 million people who need to know what’s coming and how they can react.

KPCC’s science reporter Jacob Margolis and KPCC In Person are going to dive into that on stage with a panel of experts on November 19 at the University of Redlands.

Join us to find out about the future of the Inland Empire.

Guests:

Tim Krantz - professor of environmental studies at University of Redlands

Jonathan Parfrey - executive director of Climate Resolve

Kurt Schwabe - professor of environmental economics and policy at UC Riverside

Andrea Vidaurre - policy analyst at the Center for Community Action and Environmental Justice
