Join the Richmond Environmental Defense Fund for a presentation on what may be the most critical environmental challenge humans have ever faced. This talk will explain its underlying causes, the body of evidence relating it closely to human activities, its implications for life on earth and the pressing need for energy policy changes to mitigate it. Many alternative energy sources will be considered as will sequestration of carbon dioxide and other corrective options available. The discussion will describe the ways in which each of us contributes to global climate change and how we may become part of the solution.
