CHICAGO, IL.- In the comprehensive exhibition Climate Change, The Field Museum adresses one of the most urgent scientific and social issues of the 21st Century: global climate change. The exhibition explains the science behind this issue and explores the implications of climate change going unchecked for future generations. Climate Change makes it clear there is no single solution to the problem. Instead, it allows visitors to see how individual, collective, communal, and governmental actions can make a meaningful impact in reducing global climate change.

Climate Change opens at The Field Museum on June 25 and will remain on view through Thanksgiving Day weekend, November 28, 2010.

“We are proud to present an exhibition that illustrates the causes and effects of climate change while also providing ideas for practical, long-range solutions,” said John McCarter, President of The Field Museum. “Climate change is one of the most critical issues of our time.”

Climate Change at The Field Museum is sponsored by Exelon Corporation, Motorola Foundation, HSBC - North America, Jones Lang LaSalle, and Whole Foods Market. Exelon Corporation is contributing $1 for every visitor to the Climate Change exhibition, up to $200,000.

Through interactive stations and videos, as well as dioramas conveying the latest research, Climate Change presents evidence that human activity over the past 300 years has dramatically altered the natural world. Greenhouse gases, like carbon dioxide (CO2), have increased rapidly in the atmosphere and have changed the Earth’s climate. The exhibition explains how the resulting changes will severely stress human societies and damage ecosystems, cause sea levels to rise, increase the incidences of drought and intense storms, drastically raise temperatures over areas of land and ocean surfaces, and bring additional changes to the world around us.

The exhibition focuses on solutions and illustrates what is needed to move away from dependence on fossil fuels toward new energy technologies. Future energy choices are displayed including solar power, wind power, nuclear power, and the use of carbon capture and storage, also known as carbon sequestration. The exhibition identifies how we can contribute to a global solution through simple changes in individual behavior.
