Researchers and scholars at WPI view the changing climate through many lenses. Here they share what they see when they study the changing world with the benefit of their distinctive expertise and unique viewpoints. Their voices echo WPI’s long heritage of not simply acknowledging problems, but crafting practical solutions. For in the end, these voices may be chilled by today’s harsh reality, but they are also warmed by the prospect of a better world we can build together.
