“Climate Reality: 2014 Update”
In honor of Tu B’Shevat and our relationship to the world around us, Steve Bacher will present the latest science in an updated version of the slide show made famous by Al Gore in the movie, An Inconvenient Truth. The year 2012 went down in history as the warmest year on record. Melting polar ice caps, catastrophic storms and prolonged droughts all point to climate change as a serious international crisis with devastating consequences for human life. In 2013, Climate Reality Leadership Corps Trainings were held in Chicago and Istanbul. There are now nearly 6,000 trained Climate Leaders in more than 100 countries educating their communities about climate change. Each of them—including Steve Bacher—has been personally trained by former Vice President Al Gore, Chairman of the Climate Reality Project. Over the next several months, groups across the world are engaging communities to discuss and learn of the realities of global climate change and how strategies can be put in place to lower carbon dioxide emissions and lessen impacts. Steve’s presentation will be about an hour long, with Q&A and discussion to follow. For more information, visit http://climaterealityproject.org/ .
