New Years Eve In Times Square Is All About Climate Change

New Years Eve In Times Square Is All About Climate Change

Times Square was getting ready for the big event Tuesday night. The ball was missing but the numerals 2020 were in place.

On New Year’s Eve, we reflect on the dominant themes of the past year and seek hope and inspiration as we look forward. This year we reflect on climate change through the lens of science, but more specifically science teachers and their students – celebrating both as they work to solve this global problem through local research and activism. Meet our honorees: Jared Fox and Aida Rosenbaum and their students.

High school seniors Ricardo Herrera, Diane Arevalo, Daniel Soto and Van Troy Ulloa are all well-versed in climate change. Together with their teachers they will help drop the ball in Times Square on a New Year’s Eve. How ironic it will be with warmer than usual temperatures.

High school seniors Ricardo Herrera, Diane Arevalo, Daniel Soto and Van Troy Ulloa and two of their teachers, Jared Fox and Aida Rosenbaum, were selected to press the ball drop button and launch the final countdown to 2020.

The six will arrive for the Wednesday festivities on what is expected to be a warmer-than-usual night — the forecast calls for a temperature of 35 degrees, 6 degrees above the average low on Dec. 31.
