Argonne Outloud: Community and Climate: Responding to Our Warming World


- Advertisement -

Climate change isn’t just about the melting polar ice caps.

Historic flooding, record-breaking heat waves and an increase in air quality alerts show that climate change is affecting all of us – in and around our own homes. And as winter approaches, the warmer temperatures will result in additional, adverse effects. Yet, despite its global reach, not everyone experiences climate change in the same way.

Disinvested, under-resourced communities, often suffer the worst effects.

On November 30, 2023, Argonne OutLoud brought together community leaders, researchers, and lead scientists from CROCUS (Community Research on Climate and Urban Science) to discuss what climate change looks like in Chicago today and what these conditions can tell us about the future.

In addition, they explored what work can be done now to bring about better outcomes for communities, the city, the region, and other urban areas around the country and world.

CROCUS is an Urban Integrated Field Laboratory led by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory in partnership with academic and community organizations, and civic and industry champions. Join us for this event that will showcase the powerful collaboration between community and science to create communities resilient to the effects of climate change.

Argonne National Laboratory seeks solutions to pressing national problems in science and technology. The nation’s first national laboratory, Argonne conducts leading-edge basic and applied scientific research in virtually every scientific discipline. Argonne researchers work closely with researchers from hundreds of companies, universities, and federal, state and municipal agencies to help them solve their specific problems, advance America’s scientific leadership and prepare the nation for a better future. With employees from more than 60 nations, Argonne is managed by UChicago Argonne, LLC for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time. For more information, visit the Office of Science website.
