Climate Change: the Science and the Solutions at Hand
Sunday, Jan. 6th at 1pm
Unitarian Church, 6300 A Street, Lincoln, NE 68510
Dr. Lucas Sabalka is a professor at Saint Louis University and is part of the Climate Reality Project, whose goal is to create a global movement to demand action on the climate crisis. The climate talk will focus on three aspects of climate change: the overwhelming scientific evidence and consensus showing humans are the cause; the moral and economic imperative to act now; and the affordable technology that already exists to address climate change and the actions each of us can take to build a better world. The climate lecture is co-sponsored by the Citizens Climate Lobby and the Green Sanctuary Committee of the Unitarian Church. More info, click here.
