CO2 levels have overshot 420 ppm for the first time in several million years. The climate crisis isn’t waiting for us to get our act together. The power of oil takes no time off. We need to act now! We need everyone who can to help in this fight. Come see if the Sierra Club has a role that fits what you want to do to fight climate change. Discussion: 7:00 – 7:30 pm
Presentation: Coral Reefs and Climate Change by Juli Berwald, author of Life on the Rocks and Spineless, 7:30 – 8:30 pm
Coral reefs are a microcosm of our planet: extra-ordinarily diverse, deeply interconnected, and full of wonders. When they’re thriving, these fairy gardens hidden beneath the ocean’s surface burst with color and life. They sustain bountiful ecosystems and protect vulnerable coasts. But corals across the planet are in the middle of an unprecedented die-off, beset by warming oceans, pollution, damage by humans, and a devastating pandemic.
