Celebrate Earth Day all month as the Sacramento-Roseville chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby presents a series of climate change talks.

About this event

Celebrate Earth Day all month with the Sacramento-Roseville chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby as we present the Climate Change Speaker Series. Throughout April we’ll offer multiple free talks on different aspects of climate change, including how it will impact our local area, what it will take to tackle the challenge, and why there’s still reason for hope in the face of dire warnings from scientists. You can also purchase tickets for a virtual screening of an inspiring series of films from the Wild and Scenic Film Festival. Sign up for one or all of the events!

Here’s the lineup:

Wednesday, April 6 at 6:30 PM – Climate Change in Sacramento and Placer County (free!)

Sacramento and Placer counties are currently experiencing a variety of climate change impacts including worsening heat waves, droughts, and wildfires. And there is more to come. In this event, environmental scientist Dana Nuccitelli will summarize the latest scientific research detailing local climate change impacts, what Congress is doing to address the problem, and how individuals can engage with their representatives and voice their support for climate policy solutions.

Dana Nuccitelli is Research Coordinator for the nonprofit Citizens’ Climate Lobby and an environmental scientist and climate journalist. He has been writing about climate change for over a decade for, The Guardian, and Yale Climate Connections.

Wednesday, April 27 at 6:30 PM – What Will It Take to End Climate Change? (free!)

CCL volunteer and Climate Ambassador, Kathy Dodson will lead an interactive presentation using the En-ROADS climate solutions simulator, developed by MIT Sloan and Climate Interactive. Kathy Dodson is a Physical Therapist with a Masters in Public Health and, as a Climate Ambassador for Climate Interactive, has led more than 20 presentations on the En-ROADS simulator.

Have you ever wondered which actions are most effective to address climate change? Would driving electric vehicles solve climate change? How about planting a trillion trees? Or replacing fossil fuels with solar and wind farms? Find out which actions are the most effective in addressing climate change by using the En-ROADS climate simulator. Kathy will use En-ROADS, to show how various climate solutions, say carbon price, or electrification, or planting trees, affect outcomes, such as temperature.

En-ROADS has been a critical tool for talking with members of Congress about climate change solutions. It allows the participants to use different methods to reduce emissions and explore the impact of policies that will help limit global warming to no more than 2°C (3.6°F) through 2100 with the goal of avoiding irreversible damage to the environment, global economy, and public health.

Wednesday, May 4 at 6:30 PM – Hope in the Face of Climate Change (free!)

The United Nation’s IPCC reports that grow ever more urgent, along with worsening droughts, floods, and extreme weather events around the world, together may make it seems as if there’s no hope for tackling climate change. According to surveys from the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication, more than half of all Americans now say they are either “alarmed” or “concerned” about global warming. From 2014 to 2019, the number of Americans saying they are “alarmed” nearly tripled.

Lisa Howard, co-leader of the Sacramento-Roseville chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby, will talk about innovations that provide reason for optimism, explore the reasons why leading scientists such as Jane Goodall and Katharine Hayhoe believe there’s still hope, and discuss ways to turn personal apathy and despair into hope. Come prepared to be inspired!
