When: Thursday, September 23, 2021, 7:00-8:00pm PST
Where: Online via Zoom. Register here for the Zoom link!
Event description: In this online talk, author Mark Jaccard speaks on how climate-concerned citizens can overcome myths that hinder us from acting in time to prevent extreme climate impacts. Their actions can involve personal consumption choices (electric vehicles, heat pumps) but these only have an effect if citizens are also engaged in the political process and civil society to elect and support climate-sincere politicians. These personal and collective efforts must align with and foster a global strategy of decarbonization, especially in developing countries. Be ready to learn what is required on a simple path to climate success and what you can contribute.
