Date(s) - 11/29/2018
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Envision our response to climate change as a three-act play. During Act One, which ended around 1990, climate scientists defined the warming problem and challenged society to respond. In Act Two (the present), scientists have moved to the rear of the stage, as new actors now claim the limelight with proposals and actions to resolve (or to deny) the global warming predicament. Some decades in the future the curtain will rise on Act Three, in which the dramatic tensions and resolutions will depend upon today’s actions.
Long time JUC member Phil Nelson chairs the Golden Chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby, a volunteer nonpartisan, nonprofit group that promotes legislation to counter climate change.
