Join King County Executive Dow Constantine online to kick off Earth Week.

The executive and a panel of experts plan a live online chat to discuss possible local impacts of climate change and steps businesses, governments and people can take to address the issue.

Join Constantine and the panel for the chat at 11 a.m. Monday.The county maintains a website to highlight climate change efforts. Participants can also sign up for the chat on Facebook.

Tweet questions in advance using the hashtag #askdow, or email questions to climatechange@kingcounty.gov.

Scientists said climate change in the region could mean warmer and drier summers, and more flooding in the valleys and less snow in the mountains during fall and winter.

The experts joining Constantine include Ross Macfarlane from Climate Solutions, Lara Whitely Binder from the University of Washington Climate Impacts Group and King County experts in the fields of climate change, transportation, “green” building, energy and waste reduction.

Earth Day is April 22.
