Bob Lindmeier: Solving the Climate Crisis
Join Zoom Meeting: https://zoom.us/j/91716895709
Bob Lindmeier, WKOW Chief Meteorologist, will discuss local and global climate change. He looks at how climate scientists have determined that we are in a climate crisis. The warming climate has supercharged our atmosphere resulting in more frequent and intense extreme weather events. Bob will then discuss the consequences from climate change that we’re experiencing now, with an emphasis on how the climate has changed locally and the problems that these changes are causing in our lives. He will show projections of how much more the climate will change through the end of the century if we continue to burn fossil fuels at the current rate. The projections will show how urgent it is to transition to renewable energy quickly, otherwise our children and grandchildren will live their adult lives in a much different (and much worse) climate. Finally Bob will look at solutions, including ways to reduce your carbon footprint and the absolute need to put a price on carbon with bills now in Congress. The solutions are there, the question is do we have the will to enact these changes? Adults and teens welcome. This will be a virtual presentation. 24 hours before the program begins we will share the login information for the online Zoom session.
