The Climate Crisis: Challenge & Opportunity

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

2015 is a critical year for climate action.
The costs of carbon pollution have never been more clear: stronger storms, bigger floods and mudslides, deeper droughts, worsening fires, hotter temperatures, spreading tropical diseases, melting ice and rising seas, all brought on by our reckless pollution of the atmosphere—and yet there is hope.
This December, world leaders will gather in Paris to adopt a new global agreement to solve the climate crisis. Their meeting will take place as prices for clean, renewable electricity continue to plummet, demand for climate action continues to grow and governments take bold action.
In his session, former Vice President Al Gore will discuss the need for climate action, Live Earth: Road to Paris and the way forward for our civilization.
