Climate Action and Education Forum – 2014
On Friday, May 9, 2014, the Institute for Sustainable Practices hosted a Climate Action and Education Forum that included presentations by three experts who each have a unique perspective about solutions to climate change. Environmental scientist Paul Ruscher, Ph.D., demystified climate science by debunking the top 10 climate myths; Russ Pierson, DMin, Global Leadership, discussed the social impacts of climate change; and psychologist and author, Don Schneider, Ph.D., presented concrete tools for positively influencing climate skeptics so that we can all be done with the senseless bickering and begin focusing on the vastly more important work of mitigation and adaptation.
Links to the videos of the forum, presenters powerpoint presentations, and written answers to questions posed during the forum are provided here.
