Climate Change Fears & Uncertainty: Is there a nonpartisan, scientific approach?
mer. 20 février à 01:00
CPL IS SCHEDULED FOR NEXT TUESDAY DUE TO V-Day. Climate is in the news these days, thanks to the Polar Vortex that brought sub-zero temperatures to much of the country last week. Whether man is contributing to climate change or not, something is up and it is time to explore what we might want to do about it. But what can we do? What should we do? What we are experiencing is more science than politics, yet the issue is mired in politics thanks to the way it’s been addressed to date. Join us for this sure-to-be-lively discussion as we explore our fears and concerns, then try to come up with a few non-partisan approaches to addressing them. (This topic was selected by CPL Members through the last #VirtualDemocracy Poll! -- Thank you to all who participated) Pre-read Material: - Climate change did not “cause” Harvey or Irma, but it’s a huge part of the story:
