This summer has seen Japan grappling with a heat wave and rainstorms that have killed over 100 people, regions in Norway above the Arctic Circle hitting 90 degrees, and the US battling record-setting fires in the West. Like the rest of the world, Arizona is also suffering from the effects of climate change, with high temperatures year after year, and a drought that threatens to trigger mandatory water restrictions.
The Pima County Public Library is teaming with the Citizens’ Climate Lobby and the UA Institute for the Environment to offer a speaker series entitled “Climate Change: Arizona’s New Reality” which details the threat of climate change to Arizona. The talks will also touch on ways we can work to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that warm the planet and practical solutions for dealing with a hotter future.
All programs take place at the Joel D Valdez Main Library, 101. N. Stone Ave. in the Lower Level Meeting Room. Show up at 2:30pm to interact with youth environmental groups. Lectures start at 3:00pm.
