Climate Change - Where Do We Go from Here?
Wednesday, May 12th, 6:00 pm, Virtual Zoom Presentation from Prescott, AZ, Climate Change – Where Do We Go from Here?
 
Northern AZ Climate Change Alliance is sponsoring  Climate Change – Where Do We Go from Here?  with NAU Professor Brian Petersen. We will spotlight why climate change is so polarizing despite overwhelming evidence that climate change is happening. Our society remains divided on its causes and solutions. Open discussion and Q&A will be encouraged to explore potential ways for empowering society to address the greatest challenge of our time. 
 
Once registered you will receive a zoom link the day before and day of the zoom event.
 
Brian Petersen is an associate professor in Geography, Planning and Recreation at Northern Arizona University. He received his PhD in Environmental Studies at the University of California Santa Cruz. Brian’s research focuses broadly on the social dimensions of climate change. He recently co-authored a book with Diana Stuart and Ryan Gunderson called Climate Change Solutions: Overcoming the Capital-Climate Contradiction.
