Hurricane Resilience: America Acts on Climate Part 2
August 30, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
The 2014 Hurricane Season launched with North Carolina’s coast as a direct target. We made it through ‘Arthur’ but have a whole alphabet of potential storms which to prepare for this summer.
“Hurricane Resilience: America Acts on Climate” is a series of three educational events will take place at the Historic Train Depot in Morehead City, NC. The first meeting in July was very well attended and participants left feeling that important connections had been made and the conversation well-begun.
On Saturday, August 30 from 10:00am-12:00pm NC Interfaith Power & Light will present the second part of a network of resources to empower communities to adapt to the climate change already inevitable and make changes to prevent worsening of the climate crisis.
Join Dr. Megan Mallard, Climate Scientist and NCSU graduate; NC Interfaith Power & Light; and the Croatan Group of the Sierra Club in a critical community conversation about the science of hurricanes and how impending sea level rise will impact our county.
We will review recommendations for our area from the county-wide flood plain maps and the National Climate Assessment Report published in June, 2014. http://nca2014.globalchange.gov/
Engaging communities in “climate conversations” about local impacts leads people not only to prepare for impending disasters, but to be inspired to prevent them preemptively.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Free and open to the public. Snacks and beverages will be provided.
