Climate Resilience: Reframing the climate crisis conversation with Karenna Gore
Mar 4 at 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm
“The impacts of climate change are already here. It is an economical issue. It is a national security issue. It is also a moral issue. It requires deep consideration of our moral obligations to one another across time and space. The causes are also present among us and if we can see them quite clearly, we might be able to stop this unimaginably tragedy. In addition, we must simultaneously learn to adapt to the damage that has already been done.” ~ Karenna Gore
