July Monthly Meeting Tuesday 7/18 at 6:30 pm: Putting Carbon Where It Belongs

Join us for our July meeting which will feature a talk by Chris Searles of BioIntegrity.net:

Putting Carbon Where It Belongs: The Power of Globally Strategic, Biogenic Decarbonization or, How to Win on Climate Change Now

Climate change and species loss are spiraling out of control today. What’s the biggest, most actionable solution?

Protecting Earth’s most biodiverse ecosystems radically reduces global greenhouse gas pollution, protects enormous stored carbon reserves, minimizes extreme weather events, slows global warming, and much more. Earth’s oldest living systems are our greatest climate solution assets.

“BioIntegrity” was founded by Chris Searles in 2015 to promote the world’s most global environmental solutions. This talk will explain the connection between biodiversity and the climate, how protecting the web of life is our most complete climate solution, and where to go to be a part of the solution.

45 Minute Talk. 15 Minute Q&A. Visit biointegrity.net for more information and our Facebook Event page to invite your friends.

Our monthly meetings are held the third Tuesday of each month at Scholz Garten. Children are welcome. We gather at 6:30 to eat and visit. The meeting will be called to order promptly at 7 p.m. and adjourned at 8:30 p.m.
