Dallas Hetherington, Climate Change and You, February 7, 2021

Dallas Hetherington
C-Change Conversations

Virtual Presentation via Zoom videoconferencing

Free and open to the public
Sponsored by the Friends of the Needham Public Library
Co-sponsored by the Green Needham Collaborative

How do we know climate change is real and caused by humans? What is the scientific consensus? What are the dangers? Is there hope?

These questions and more will be answered in an unbiased fashion by Dallas Hetherington, a speaker from C-Change Conversations.

The presentation is an engaging and compelling program that uses visual data, charts and photographs to provide an accessible overview of climate science and a clear-eyed assessment of the risks ahead. It focuses on the interplay of science, economics and policy (including the benefits of moving to a low-carbon economy), rather than depicting climate change as an environmental or political issue.

C-Change Conversations, a New Jersey-based nonprofit organization, developed the 50-minute presentation in consultation with independent climate scientists and public policy specialists and has presented it to more than 6,500 people nationwide.

The program will take place live on Zoom, with questions and answers following the presentation.

This event is free and open to the public but you must first register within one month of the event date here. Registration for this event will remain open until February 4, 2021. You will receive a link to the Zoom session two days before the event.
