Concord, NH – When it comes to climate change in New Hampshire, one scientist says it's more like a meteor than a gradual warming.

Professor Brendan Kelly will be speaking on the center stage at Concord's Downtown Market Days on Wednesday. He says the impact of global warming in Alaska shows it's happening much faster than most forecasters expected.

"Maybe it seems distant to somebody sitting in New Hampshire, but to the people who are experiencing it, it's very real and very disruptive. As we start to realize we're all interconnected, when communities elsewhere in the world are facing that kind of disruption, it ripples through the entire economy."

People in regions that are not seeing dramatic changes yet shouldn't wait for them to happen, according to Kelly. He believes people must start planning now to make sure no one gets "trampled" when changes strike.

However, Kelly adds, the future is not all gloom and doom –- society still has time to prepare for coming changes.

"When we decide to get up on our hind legs and look a problem in the eye, we're pretty capable of dealing with it. So, I think it's important that people not lose hope and begin to despair. On the other hand, we don't have a lot of time to fool around. We need to get serious about this."
