Extreme Weather and Climate Change – How should the U.S. respond?
14350 W. 32nd Ave, Golden, CO 80401 (Jefferson Unitarian)
Thurs. Nov 17, 7pm
Witness the human response to climate change as individuals and institutions respond to the challenge as extreme weather events like heat waves, floods, and wildfires impact Colorado and the U.S.
Will public awareness now support the transition of the U.S. energy system needed to cope with climate change? Can denialism be overcome? What are the prospects for national action?
Phil Nelson is an MIT trained retired geophysicist. He chairs the Golden Chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby, a volunteer nonpartisan group that promotes putting a price on carbon to counter climate change. CCL’s plan will reduce greenhouse gases while actually boosting the economy.
