Spring 2021 Section 12, Starting on: 04/07/2021

The C-Change Primer: This presentation is a non-partisan overview of the science behind climate change and a clear-eyed assessment of the potential risks ahead. It frames climate change in terms of jobs and the economy, health and personal security, and geopolitical security. The presentation answers the questions most Americans have about climate change, such as: How do we know climate change is real and is caused by humans? What is the scientific consensus? What are the dangers? Is there hope? This program is presented by C-Change Conversations, a Princeton-based nonprofit organization. In consultation with independent climate scientists and public policy specialists, they move the conversation away from the politicized language of today to help us understand the implications of climate change. The organization was founded in 2014 and is run by volunteers with diverse political points of view. They have presented to over 10,000 people nationwide.
