Climate Reality: You Can Make A Difference!
Our emissions of greenhouse gases have caused our planet to warm to such an extent that it has become difficult to live sustainably. We will need to make some major changes to our energy and our agricultural systems as well our eating habits if we are to solve the current climate crisis. What are these specific energy and agricultural transitions and how are they going to be implemented? Please join Andrew Callaway Ellis, MS, for a discussion about renewable energy systems and sustainable agricultural practices to solve some of our most pressing environmental issues. Our conversation will range from wind and solar solutions to dietary changes that will make a big difference on our global emissions of greenhouse gases. The image above is a wind farm and energy storage installation at Barasoain, Navarra in northern Spain which includes two batteries that are connected to a 3-MW AW116/3000 wind turbine. As a plant ecologist and paleontologist, Andrew has gained a unique perspective on climate change over deep time and he has been presenting The Climate Reality Project slide show to many high school students, environmental groups, political organizations, legislators and religious congregations for over 5 years. Mr. Ellis spent over 35 years as a career scientist, both with the EPA, designing clean-up plans for Superfund sites, and as an environmental consultant in the insurance industry. This free educational event is sponsored by the West Los Angeles Group of the Angeles Chapter of the Sierra Club.
