The Dublin Community Center is sponsoring an event to explore climate change. “The C-Change Primer” program uses visual data, charts and photographs to provide an accessible overview of the science behind climate change and an assessment of potential risks. Kathleen Biggins, founder of C-Change Conversations, will present the program on Monday, June 17, at 7 p.m. at the The Dublin Community Center.
C-Change Conversations, a New Jersey-based nonprofit organization, developed the primer in consultation with independent climate scientists and public policy specialists and has presented it to more than 6,000 people nationwide. It answers many of the questions most Americans have about climate change, such as: How do we know climate change is real and is caused by humans? What is the scientific consensus? What are the dangers? Is there hope?
The 50-minute presentation’s focus is on the interplay of science, economics and policy — including the benefits of moving to a low-carbon economy. It was developed with input from Climate Central and the Yale Program on Climate Change Communications.
The community center is at 1123 Main St. in Dublin. This free event is open to the public.
