Join scientists from the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) for a panel discussion of different moments in the history of Earth's climate–from the extinction of the dinosaurs, to different ice ages–that shed light on the current climatic moment, and its potential consequences, moderated by Ro Kinzler, senior director for science education at the Museum, and introduced by Museum Curator Nathalie Goodkin, an oceanographer.

Paleoceanographer Laura Haynes, micropaleontologist Chris Lowery, Antarctic ice sheet expert Reed Scherer, and paleoclimatologist Amelia Shevenell will highlight some of the most important moments in the history of our planet's climate—and share what Earth’s climate history can tell us about what's to come.
