Emeritus College Online Seminar with Dr. Imtiaz Haque

October 8 (Thursday) 10:00am – 11:00am, Online Seminar: Impact of Climate Change on Bird Life in the Upstate and Beyond with Dr. Imtiaz Haque, Professor Emeritus of Automotive Engineering: Birds are fascinating at so many different levels. They live on every continent. Some of them can mimic human speech, make tools, dance like you wouldn’t believe, and have binocular vision. They save human lives and crops by regulating pests, they pollinate, and provide sanitary services through scavenging. They represent a world that we only vaguely understand and they afford us the thrill of discovery. Birds are compelling because they are barometers of the health of our ecosystems, of the robustness of our world. Climate change is an existential threat to all life on the planet and birds are no exception. We are fortunate to live in Upstate South Carolina, a place unique in its diversity of both flora and fauna, especially bird life. This talk highlights the impact of climate change on bird life locally and beyond, and what we can expect if we don't move with urgency to mitigate the impact.
