Experiencing Climate Change

A critical obstacle to action on climate change for many is that climate change is intangible and difficult to relate to, and therefore hard to interpret its relevance to our daily lives. The Climate Change Garden, a campus installation in the Cornell Botanic Garden, is the first installation of its kind to demonstrate the impacts of changing temperature variables on plants in a way that is both experiential and experimental.
