This online Climate Science on Tap moderated panel discussion is a fundraiser and a fascinating topic for those concerned about action on climate change now that we are in the time of COVID-19.

Global warming and pandemics are arguably existential threats and both require aggressive international action, institutional leadership, structural reform, and behavior change to address. Yet these challenges are also fundamentally different. So can the response to the novel coronavirus teach us anything about dealing with climate change or will the disease derail progress in curbing emissions? And what are lockdowns teaching scientists about our planetary system? The next enthralling episode in the Climate Science on Tap series highlights these contemporary crises facing our society.
