Dealing with Climate Change

Time: 6-8:15 p.m., Tuesday, April 22, 2014, at Brooks Memorial Library, Brattleboro

Increasing greenhouse gases, amplified by the water cycle, are transforming the climate of the Earth and New England. Our winters are shrinking rapidly, so crops and pests can both survive, and severe weather and flooding is increasing. I will discuss the changes that are happening and address the huge transition we face as a society – in our attitudes, our energy system, and our ‘waste management’. How can we deal with all this in our communities; so we can make a creative contribution to the future of the Earth and our children.

Dr. Alan Betts is a climate researcher, who has been supported for 30 years by NSF and NASA as an independent scientist in Vermont. He gives talks to professional and citizens group across Vermont and advises the State’s climate cabinet. He has an MA in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge and a PhD from the University of London. His web-site, alanbetts.com, will answer many of those burning questions!

The Climate Change Café convenes the 4th Tuesday of each month, 6:00 PM, in the community room of Brooks Memorial Library, Brattleboro.
