Convene for hot dogs and beer at 6:30 p.m. Forum begins at 7 p.m.

More about the discussion:

Global climate change is a threat to the environment, public health, and people’s homes and livelihoods. Climate change stresses natural ecosystems, undermines our health and wellbeing by contaminating the air we breathe, the water we drink, and eroding the soil that sustains our food supply. Globally, a lack of environmental security means billions of people do not have access to safe water, clean air, adequate food, and proper healthcare. According to the United Nations Institute for Environment and Human Security, these changes are also already creating millions of climate refugees. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that between 2030 and 2050, climate change will cause approximately 250,000 additional deaths per year from heat stress, diarrhea, infectious diseases, childhood malnutrition. The WHO also predicts that climate change will result in billions of dollars more in health care costs.

We need to better understand our impact and relationship to the natural environment, the direct costs associated with it, and learn how we can adapt to or alter these imminent threats.
