Yesterday, a literal bee flew in front of my face. A bee. In February. And not even late February, like, early early February. Now… show of hands: who wants to talk about climate change?
Bill Ripple, the Oregon State University professor who teamed up with eight co-authors to write Scientists’ Warning to Humanity: A Second Notice, is coming to the City Club of Corvallis, February 13, to present and discuss what he and his colleagues found: rising global threats of climate change, deforestation, access to freshwater, species extinction, human population growth, and declining fisheries.
Not all doom and gloom, Ripple intends to elaborate on the steps needed to reverse these negative trends. Join him, and the 20,000 co-signers from 184 countries in support of the article, and take individual stride toward banded public demand that could influence political change; Join the Ripple effect.
Bill Ripple presents Scientists’ Warning to Humanity – The rest of the story at the Boys and Girls Club of Corvallis, at 1112 NW Circle Blvd, Tuesday, February 13. Doors open at 11:30 a.m. The presentation begins at noon, and a Q&A will follow.
A lunch by Valley Catering, of meat lasagna or vegetarian pasta, can be reserved online at cityclubofcorvallis.org, by Friday, February 9. $10 for members, $15 for non-members.
