Climate Change: Ways to think about how it will affect the lives of our children
Monday, June 3 at 6:30 pm, Tyler Free Library
Climate change is the worldwide shift in the earth’s normal weather patterns in response to human activity. Will energy costs go up? Does it make a difference to drive less, or use less petroleum products? Are cattle burps really to blame?
Julie Parmentier will be speaking on Climate Change Monday, June 3 at Tyler Free Library. Recently retired from teaching environmental science at Bryant University, she offers her audience a wealth of current information on the topic and is prepared to answer your questions.
Her talk begins with a review of basic scientific facts, identifies common misunderstandings, and invites your questions. She will be addressing the impact of climate change on our state and in the world.
Light refreshments featuring local produce from Rhode Island farmer’s markets will be available after her talk. This program is free and open to the public. The library building is wheelchair accessible.
