Message from the Director

Climate change is the most important and pressing issue facing society today. It is an incredibly complex, multi-dimensional challenge that requires multi-disciplinary solutions. The McMaster Centre for Climate Change does exactly that by bringing together scientists and researchers from across McMaster and beyond our University. Together, we are helping build a brighter world for the 7.8 billion people and millions of other species who call Earth home.
