April 30th Talk: What Pacifica Can Do about Climate Change?

Post date: Mar 14, 2013 2:17:32 AM

Throughout California, cities are developing climate action plans aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In Pacifica, a city task force has developed a draft climate action plan which will come to the City Council for adoption in the near future.

On Tuesday, April 30th, Dr. Carlos Davidson, from the Pacifica Climate Committee will discuss what Pacifica can do about climate change at a public meeting sponsored by Pacifica’s Environmental Family. The Pacifica Climate Committee is a citizens group working on climate issues in Pacifica. Dr. Davidson will focus on how climate change will affect Pacifica and what the draft climate action plan would do to reduce Pacifica’s greenhouse gas emissions. While Pacifica faces very large and challenging unknowns as sea level rises, Dr. Davidson will discuss steps citizens can take individually and as a city to address climate change.

Speaker Davidson holds Bachelors and Masters degrees in economics from UC Berkeley and a PhD in ecology from UC Davis. He is currently a professor of Environmental Studies at San Francisco State University, where he works on sustainability issues and researches the global disappearance of frogs.

The evening is the first in a series of talks, hosted by Pacifica's Environmental Family, touching on aspects of Pacifica’s environment.
