What Can We Do About Carbon?


Most discussions of climate change focus on the reduction of carbon emissions as the only practical, effective action we can take. However, there are a number of other options available. This event will spark awareness of specific steps we can take to slow it down, and even move toward reversal and restoration of our natural environment.

We’ll kick off with a presentation of The Dirt on Climate Change, a 46-minute film by local documentary filmmaker Lois Robin, followed by a Roundtable Discussion starting at 2 pm to address awareness and information gaps in ways that allow each of us to engage in the fight to save our planet.
