Dr. Brenda Ekwurzel is Director of Climate Science for the Climate & Energy Program at the Union of Concerned Scientists. She will be in Utah later this week for events in Salt Lake City and Ogden. She says we can adapt to and reduce risks from changing weather patterns and other consequences of releasing heat-trapping emissions to the atmosphere, and that we can switch to a lower emissions trajectory. Dr. Brenda Ekwurzel will give us specific examples for Utah on the program today.
Dr. Ekwurzel will offer a free presentation for high school, Jr high school students and teachers as well as for the general public titled “Climate Change: The Reality, The Solutions,” at the Nancy Tessman Auditorium, the downtown Salt Lake City Library, on Thursday, March 21st from 3:15-5:00 p.m.
