WHERE: North University Community Branch Library, 8820 Judicial Drive, San Diego, CA 92122 (MAP)

Climate change is happening now and is radically altering our biosphere—the envelope of earth, air and water that sustains life on earth. In order to avoid the worst impacts, we need to make changes in our lives both personal and collective.

This FREE slide presentation seeks to inform members of the general public about this challenge facing our species and to empower all of us to take action! Phil Petrie of will be presenting. There will be informative handouts and snacks.

This is a great “beginner level” presentation to bring friends or family members for an intro to what climate change is all about and to how we can solve this crisis – together.

Questions? Email [address removed].  Download and share our flyer.  RSVP on facebook.

We hope to see you there!
