Our monthly meetings are the second Saturday of every month - the next one is July 10.
We will provide an update on chapter activities, including a lobby meeting with Congressman Ami Bera and CCL's national conference that occurred in early June. We'll also discuss what is happening with carbon pricing bills in Congress and other climate bills.
For information on how to join the Zoom call, search your email for "CCL Sacramento". This will bring up our chapter newsletter - which is sent to all CCL Sacramento members in the first week of the month.
The next meetings are August 14, September 11 and October 9.
DR. KATHARINE HAYHOE
September 10, 3 pm An Afternoon with Dr. Katharine Hayhoe – Climate Scientist and Evangelical Christian
Professor Hayhoe is one of the most renowned climate scientists of our time and an evangelical Christian, a fascinating combination to say the least. She currently serves as the Political Science Endowed Professor in Public Policy and Public Law in the Department of Political Science, and Director of the Climate Center at Texas Tech University. Among Dr. Hayhoe’s numerous awards and accolades, she was named one of TIME Magazine’s 100 most influential people in 2014. She is the founder and CEO of ATMOS Research, which bridges the gap between scientists and stakeholders to provide relevant, state-of-the-art information on how climate change is affecting our lives. Her research focuses primarily on establishing a scientific basis for assessing the impacts of climate change on human systems and the natural environment.
Dr. Hayhoe is about to publish a new book, "Saving Us – A Climate Scientist’s Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World." This is not another doomsday narrative about a planet on fire. She argues that when it comes to changing hearts and minds, facts are only one part of the equation. We need to find shared values in order to connect our unique identities to collective action.
This promises to be a fascinating talk - join us.
