Climate Change is the New Normal, says Dr. Michele Barbato
As California broils under triple-digit temperatures, Dr. Michele Barbato, Co-director of the UC Davis Climate Adaptation Research Center and faculty director of the CITRIS Climate Initiative, says climate change is to blame.
“Putting AC everywhere can seem like a solution, but it’s not a long-term solution,” he tells the Sacramento Bee. “We are using more energy and that is increasing climate change. We are making the moving target further away from us.”
