The Time to Lead on Climate coalition will present an educational forum on “Saving the Bay from Climate Change” on Monday, April 25, 7-9 pm, at the San Rafael Community Center, 618 B St. in San Rafael.
The forum will address how Bay Area residents can meet the rapidly growing challenge of sea level rise and its impact on San Francisco Bay. It will include discussion of the Clean and Healthy Bay Measure AA appearing on the June 7 ballot. Dr. Stephen Crooks, a UN Climate Delegate and contributor to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, will start the evening by describing “The insistent science of sea level rise—and its solutions.” Bay Area Council Policy Director Adrian Covert will address “The economic threat of rising tides,” and Marin City Community Services District Chair Nancy Johnson will explain how “We’re all at risk.” Save the Bay Executive Director David Lewis will conclude with an overview of “Measure AA, the Bay and our identity.”
Marin Supervisor and Bay Conservation and Development Commissioner Kate Sears will moderate, and there will be audience Q&A.
RSVP for assured seating at www.leadonclimate.org. $10 donation appreciated, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Time to Lead on Climate is a coalition of three dozen leading environmental and social action groups, including Sustainable Fairfax.
