Last December in Paris, nations around the world agreed on the need for aggressive climate action. A first. But so far, inadequate commitments just highlight the gaping chasm between where we need to go and the steps that can take us there. So we ask, what are the opportunities for 2016? What false solutions may we start hearing about? And what can each of us do to have the greatest impact on the climate crisis?
Mark Hertsgaard, celebrated Nation magazine Environmental Correspondent and author of the hopeful Hot: Living Through the Next 50 Years on Earth, will speak on these topics.
Mr. Hersgaard's talk is followed by a discussion with 350Marin activists who were on the ground in Paris. This Community Conversation then continues with a Q & A.
- Elizabeth Ferguson, PhD., founder of Climate Compassion, an organization dedicated to a sustainable climate, social justice, and compassion for the web of life.
- Emilie Anna Reeves, Food, faith, and systems change activist and 350Marin Steering Committee member.
