Over a year ago, the UN International Panel on Climate Change issued a stunning report stating that we have 12 years or less to avert far more serious climate disruption. Already we are seeing climate disruption all around us: catastrophic fires consuming large areas in Australia and California, extreme storms wreaking destruction in the Caribbean, and widespread historic flooding in the Midwest. Climate scientist Prof. Stephen Pekar will explain the science, the dramatic steps needed to address climate change fast enough, and steps all of us can take today as individuals.
Dr. Pekar is a Professor at Queens College School of Earth & Environmental Sciences. His research has taken him on expeditions around the world, including Antarctica.
