Event Description:

The majority of Americans recognize that climate change is happening, but many do not understand how it will impact them directly and why there is a sense of urgency to do something about it. This presentation and panel discussion will provide basic information about how the climate is changing, why it is changing, what are the possible dangers if we do nothing, and what are the various policy solutions under consideration. Plan to join us for an exciting conversation.
