Houston Climate Reality: 2017

Where are we with Climate Change—is Houston threatened? It’s been a decade since An Inconvenient Truth.  What is the current truth?  Is anything less convenient here, other than massive flooding?  John Nielsen-Gammon, the State Climatologist of Texas, will update us for the first hour on the climate data in the past ten years and how that is impacting Houston.  Then three speakers will present current slides from the Climate Reality Project, an organization dedicated to catalyzing a global solution to the climate crisis, partnering with US Green Building Council.

Speakers:
John Nielsen-Gammon, Dept. of Atmospheric Sciences, TAMU
Amariee Collins, Texas Impact
Nancy Edwards, Anthropologist and gardener
Monica Yancey, educator San Jacinto College
