How to Continue the Climate Conversation
Dr. Harold Wanless, University of Miami geology department chair and former chair of the Miami Dade Climate Change Task Force, will join with Dr. John Capece, president of the Campus Climate Corps and chairman of the Democratic Environmental Caucus, SW Florida Chapter, and the Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL), Naples Chapter, to present a hands-on Climate Change Workshop from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., October 7, at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Greater Naples.
Focused on how present and future realities of climate change may impact our area, the workshop will educate attendees using current information on sea level rise, flooding, water conservation, storm mitigation, carbon emissions, fracking, forest fires and other factors.
“A better understanding of how climate change is influencing Southwest Florida citizens allows us to not only become effective climate change communicators, but also part of the solution. Florida’s extensive shoreline, low elevation and susceptibility to hurricanes make it is the single most vulnerable state to climate change,” says Amy Clifton, co-leader of the CCL Naples Chapter. “It also helps us in joining together with a more unified voice so that we can more effectively mobilize to prevent increasing degradation.”
