What we're about

Sharing, discussion and networking about what is likely humankind's greatest challenge - mitigating and adapting to a changing climate.

This meetup will consist of two meeting formats. The "Regular" meetup is a monthly presentation and group discussion on a specific climate change related topic. Other meetups will be scheduled as climate change related events or presentations come up in the local community.

This group is focused on education, not advocacy, but we do encourage our members to support any of the following advocacy organizations - many of which are run by Climate Reality-STL members:

'We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. In this unfolding conundrum of life and history there is such a thing as being too late.

We may cry out desperately for time to pause in her passage but time is deaf to every plea and rushes on. Over the bleached bones and jumbled residues of numerous civilizations are written the pathetic words: Too late."

Martin Luther King, 1968
