Science research has confirmed that the impact of climate change is becoming increasingly urgent. The issue of climate change has garnered international attention as global temperatures continue to rise, causing more extreme and erratic weather patterns. We must learn to coexist with extreme weather and find ways to interact with nature, showcasing Taiwan's resilience.

This is the purpose of the "Climate Capriciousness•Taiwan Resilience" special exhibition, jointly launched by the National Science Council's Department of Natural Sciences and Sustainability Research, the National Science and Technology Center for Disaster Reduction, and the National Museum of Natural Science.

Over the course of four years, the exhibition will present different themes using a comprehensive and informative approach to science communication to help more people understand how Taiwanese scientists estimate climate change data. The exhibition aims to increase public awareness of climate variability, find ways to adapt, and develop strategies to improve resilience.

The exhibition is divided into three zones:Zone A: Coexisting with ClimateClimate is closely related to our daily lives, affecting what crops we plant based on seasonal changes and what clothes we choose to wear depending on the temperature. In order to live more comfortably, scientists have devoted efforts to understanding weather and climate change. As technology advances, we have come closer to understanding our relationship with the climate. How can we learn from the past to understand the present? How can we observe the wind, clouds, and sky to better understand our environment?

Zone B: Capriciousness and ResilienceIf global carbon reduction efforts fail, by the end of the century, Taiwan's summers could increase from 130 days to 210 days, and winters could decrease from 70 days to 0 days. Rainfall patterns are also expected to become increasingly uneven, with more "dry getting drier" and "wet getting wetter" conditions. What methods and strategies can we adopt to adapt and reduce the speed of climate change? How can we find resilience to coexist with unpredictable climate?

Zone C: Estimating Climate ChangeCurrently, science cannot accurately "predict" the future climate changes of the next hundred years. However, scientists have developed several scenarios of future greenhouse gas emissions, and using Earth system models and supercomputers to simulate the possible effects of these scenarios on the climate, assessing risk and developing appropriate response strategies.
