David Chapman- Ontario Superstorms: Weather on a Warming Planet
Professional photographer David Chapman has been chasing and documenting storms since he was 16 yrs old. Over the years, David’s images have recorded the increase and increased severity of the storms and weather across Ontario as our climate changes.
In this online presentation David will share images and discuss the impact ‘superstorms’ have on our environment and explore some of the challenges extreme weather presents for farmer and gardener alike. From tornadoes to flash floods, gale-force winds to microbursts, this presentation will teach you about superstorms, how to recognize the signs and show you weather in a whole new way.
Details to log-in to CHS meetings will be sent via email 2 weeks prior to each meeting date. The March meeting is open to non-members and the general public.
