"COP21: From the Meeting Halls to the Streets of Paris"
Thursday, January 14th
Poppa Rollo's Pizza
703 N. Valley Mills Dr.
6 PM Business & Buffet
6:30 Lecture & Discussion
Alan Northcutt will deliver a lecture with slideshow recounting his experience at the Paris climate summit: the response of the city, the protests, and thoughts about our next steps.
Although not strong enough to limit temperature shift to 1.5°C, the Paris accord may be one of the most important agreements in the history of civilization. With the unification of 195 nations to combat climate change, this unprecedented document provides a framework for future more aggressive limits of GHG emissions.
From our participation in a protest near the Louvre, the presentation will provide first hand account of activities outside the official COP site.
For an interactive presentation, questions will be welcome during the lecture.
