“Climate solutions: We have met the hero, and it is us,”

March 9, 2017 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

This presentation by K.C. Golden, Chairman of the Board of 350.org (following Bill McKibben’s retirement) will be delivered on Thursday March 9th from 6:30 to 7:30 in Room 151 of the Science Building on the SOU campus 1250 Siskiyou Blvd, Ashland.

Golden will talk about the movement toward climate solutions that has begun over the past five years. The climate crisis has become real, and the cost of impacts is growing too high to ignore. He says a clean-energy revolution has been launched by the strong, citizen-driven climate movement that is challenging the status quo use of fossil fuels.

Climate change is coming to be understood as a moral watershed for our times, and Golden asks how we can drive the transition as fast and as far as is necessary.

Golden, who will speak on Jefferson Public Radio prior to his SOU presentation, is the current board chair of 350.org – a worldwide organization that seeks collaboration among activist groups to focus attention on climate change issues.  The organization’s name is derived from the goal of reducing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere from the current level of more than 400 parts per million to fewer than 350 parts per million.

The presentation is free, and open to the public.
