ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE
Have you ever wanted clarity about the science behind climate change? Do you wish you could hear a non-partisan presentation on this topic? Have you wondered about the economic consequences of acting or not acting on climate change? Do you want to know the impact it may have on you and your family? The C-Change Conversations Primer answers these and other questions about this complex issue. The dynamic presentation uses charts and visual media to address the questions that most Americans have about climate change. The Primer is being presented at The Mississippi Children's Museum Education Center on Friday, October 12th at 12:00 p.m.
C-Change Conversations, a non-profit, non-partisan organization, developed the presentation in consultation with independent scientists and public policy specialists. C-Change Conversations is run by volunteers who span the political spectrum. Kathleen Biggins, co-founder of the organization, says, “Our aim is to move the conversation away from the politicized language of today and to help us all understand the implications of this issue.”
The Primer is being presented in communities across the country and reactions have been overwhelmingly positive from conservatives and liberals alike. “Thank you for not being political. I'm a Republican and almost didn't come when I saw the topic. But you were really non-partisan and gave us a lot of good facts. I learned a lot,” said one viewer. Another wrote, “…great presentation today. You presented the facts well and I can see you are really trying to make a difference. It's a good cause and certainly applies to everyone, no matter what team they are on.” A third viewer commented: You delivered absolutely the talk we all need to hear and I hope we can continue in our homes, offices, and in many settings, this most urgent conversation. I think I speak for all when I say that this was as an important a presentation as we have had.
The C-Change Primer has been extremely popular in communities such as ours and the organizers expect a significant turnout.
