The Climate Emergency: The Case for Immediate Action

Topic: The Climate Emergency: The Case for Immediate Action

Speaker: Craig Wolfe

Date/time/location: Monday, September 11; 7:30pm; The Donut Whole 1720 E. Douglas

 

The climate crisis is real. But what are the facts? What are the threats that we face? Where are the opportunities going forward? If the climate emergency is an existential threat to life on the planet, does our response reflect that of an emergency? What can and must individuals do to avert the worst consequences of the climate crisis?
     As part of Craig Wolfe’s role in Al Gore’s Climate Reality Leadership Corps, he uses slides prepared by the Climate Reality Project along with his own to demonstrate the seriousness of the climate emergency and to provide actions we must take before the clock runs out on our window of opportunity to fight the climate crisis.
     Live original music accompanied by video can be used as an introduction to the topic.
