“We’re the first generation to feel the sting of climate change and we’re the last that can do something about it,” has become something of a cliché,” a summary of the existential threat posed by global warming.

As climate change moves from an imminent peril to a deadly reality for vast swaths of the country, a panel of nationally recognized groundbreakers will discuss the gaping dichotomy between what scientists say needs to be done to moderate an impending disaster and the political reality of what is possible.

We will have a broad ranging discussion of the science, economics and politics swirling around the alarming climate change headlines. The panel will examine what state and local communities are doing to mitigate the congressional stasis, what might break the logjam, how the issues play in national, state and local elections and the role of private citizens and companies.


(Sunday) 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
