BUILDING EDUCATION SERIES 2021 - THE CLIMATE EMERGENCY

Organization: USGBC Ohio

Scientists are now calling climate change a climate emergency.  According to EcoWatch, last year's hurricane season saw a record breaking 30 named storms and 2020 suffered $25 billion in weather related disasters, more than the record set in 2017.  The U.S. also saw 10.25 million acres burned in wildfires, a record level since recording began in 1983. 

In this session we will discuss the climate emergency from different perspectives and recognize what needs to be done to avoid irreparable damage. We have three distinguished speakers who will discuss the scientific, political, environmental and economic aspects of the climate crisis. We will include time for a meaningful panel style question and answer discussion.

Speakers: 

Dr. David Orr, Paul Sears Distinguished Professor of Environmental Science and Politics, Oberlin College Emeritus

Dr. Cyrus Taylor, Albert A. Michelson Professor in Physics, Case Western Reserve University

Steve Melink, Author and Founder of Melink Corporation
