6) "The Carbon Almanac" Author Talk w/ Paige NeJame

Climate Preparedness Week 2022 is September 26th-30th. Join us this Climate Prep Week with an author talk from Paige NeJame, co-author of The Carbon Almanac.  "When it comes to the climate, we don’t need more marketing or anxiety. We need established facts and a plan for collective action. The climate is the fundamental issue of our time, and now we face a critical decision. Whether to be optimistic or fatalistic, whether to profess skepticism or to take action. Yet it seems we can barely agree on what is really going on, let alone what needs to be done. We urgently need facts, not opinions. Insights, not statistics. And a shift from thinking about climate change as a “me” problem to a “we” problem." - Event Details
