Join CCAE for Conversations on the Edge : Climate Change in Cambridge

Monday, October 28, 2019 6:00pm

 

An October 2018 report suggested we have only 12 years left to significantly reduce worldwide carbon emissions to have any chance of decelerating global warming. The climate crisis predictions include sea-level rise, increased natural disasters, economic disruption, public health emergencies, an exacerbated refugee crisis, and worsened conditions for all—but especially for the world’s most vulnerable populations.

Cambridge gets no pass—how will “our fair city” be transformed by climate change? What is the Greater Boston Area doing to prepare for the crises that are now inevitable and to prevent the worst outcomes for this city? How can we hold individuals, corporations, and governments responsible for ensuring a sustainable and environmentally-just future?
