Climate Change: What Can We Do?
Hosted by Professor Paul Loubere, this four-part series takes place Monday evenings in March and explores the ways we can reduce global warming at personal, local and national levels.
Monday, March 4th, 6:00PM: Find out where CO2 comes from and where it goes, sources of CO2 emissions, discretionary vs. structural emissions, and our own carbon footprints.
Monday, March 11th, 6:00PM: Learn about the carbon emissions from our homes and lifestyles, and the impacts of the choices in what we buy. Discuss Jefferson County’s Climate Action Plan and climate change preparedness in the Pacific Northwest.
Monday, March 18th, 6:00PM: Discuss the national power grid – how it works and its relation to green energy. We’ll look at various ways of limiting carbon emissions on a national scale, and introduce you to DrawDown, the most comprehensive plan ever proposed to reverse global warming.
Monday, March 25th, 6:00PM: Examine DrawDown, the most comprehensive plan ever proposed to reverse global warming. We’ll discuss DrawDown’s paths to reducing carbon emissions, what actions will have the biggest impact, and what avenues you can pursue to lead a “carbon-aware” life.
