Hear personal accounts of how changes in weather and climate are already

/*Jack Hedin, farmer, Minnesota */(live video connection)

connection)
/*Yvette Cissé, farmer and aid worker, Mali*/ (written testimony)

*And more*

While scientists investigate and political leaders procrastinate, people 
in many regions of the globe are seeing changes in weather patterns and 
local climate. Many of these changes are consistent with scientific 
projections of the effects of global warming. Whether or not the changes 
were /caused /by global warming, they are impacting people's lives and 
livelihoods. This evening of witness gives voice to these impacts.

/This event is part of Cambridge Climate Change Week, May 13-21. //For 
more information about the entire Climate Change Week schedule of
