Global Warming in Central Oregon: Impacts & Opportunities

Friday, January 25, 2019, 3:00 AM - 5:00 AM

It seems easy to ignore the destructive advance of global warming. Yet, complacency is leading to dangerous, escalating, and irreversible risks. Due to inattention, global warming’s destructive force has grown from a distant threat to an everyday presence, a near crisis. We ignore these risks at our own peril. Attend the FREE event at Worthy Brewing on Thursday, January 24 at 7:00 pm where presenters will provide a snapshot of current and projected impacts: from wildfires, to recreation, air quality, and water supplies. Equally important will be the presentation of expanding options for personal and collective involvement in reducing future risks. Presenters include George Wuerthner, ecologist and author of 38 publications on topics from forestry to wildfire; Yancy Lind, fisheries activist: Bill Knights, retired NOAA scientist and educator on earth, ocean, and atmospheric science; and Diane Hodiak, executive director of 350Deschutes, a nonprofit organization working on climate actions, policy, and education.
What power do we have to avoid the most damaging impacts in Central Oregon? Without question, the choices we make today are already shaping the quality of our future lives. We still have a short window of opportunity to choose bold actions that will lessen the growing magnitude of these negative outcomes. An ever expanding toolkit of options is available. Discover what you and others can do now to avoid the most catastrophic effects, and how these personal and collective actions will benefit your personal health, finances, and quality of life…not only for you, but for future generations
There is a growing movement towards local and state policies that will support these actions, making it easier for everyone to participate. This includes new incentives for used and new electric vehicles, growing clean energy options and a comprehensive list of beneficial personal choices you can make.
