Will the World Act on Climate Change Fast Enough? Two years ago nations came together for an inspiring, although long overdue global agreement for climate action. Now the Trump administration’s climate deniers control EPA. Stronger action by State governments may give hope for enactment of critical energy and climate policy.

This free event brings a panel of leading experts including Reed Schuler, J.D., Senior Climate Policy Advisor to Washington State Governor Inslee and former Obama administration State Department negotiator at the 2015 Paris Climate Talks; Nick Touran, Ph.D. Nuclear Physicist, TerraPower; and LuAnne Thompson, Ph.D. Oceanographer, UW Program on Climate Change.

Free! Doors open at 6:00pm. Climate Trivia at 6:30. Panel starts at 7:00pm.

Learn about policy strategies for meeting world energy needs without climate-changing fossil fuels. What can Washington State do? What can we each do?

Moderator: P. Sean McDonald, Ph.D., Program of the Environment, and School for Aquatic and Fishery Sciences, University of Washington.

Come enjoy the moderated discussion and bring your questions. Have dinner at the food truck, beer or cider, and a lively conversation around the tables.
