Science Cafe: The Climate Emergency

Kansas Citizens for Science presents:

The Climate Emergency: 

The Case for Immediate Action

January 17 at Coaches' Bar & Grill

135th & Grandview

5:45pm Dinner, 6:30 Program

Speaker Craig Wolfe

The Presentation:

     The climate crisis is real.  But what are the facts? What are the threats that we face?  Where are the opportunities going forward?  If the climate emergency is an existential threat to life on the planet, does our response reflect that of an emergency?  What can and must individuals do to avert the worst consequences of the climate crisis?  

     As part of Craig Wolfe’s role in Al Gore's Climate Reality Leadership Corps, he uses slides prepared by the Climate Reality Project along with his own to demonstrate the seriousness of the climate emergency and to provide actions we must take before the clock runs out on our window of opportunity to fight the climate crisis.

     Original music accompanied by video is used as an introduction to the topic.

About the Speaker:

     Craig Wolfe was trained by Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project to make presentations regarding the Climate Emergency.  He is also an activist with Kansas Sierra Club as Newsletter Editor, Webmaster and Communications; President of the Heartland Renewable Energy Society; co-founder for the KC Climate Coalition; and singer/songwriter in the group Soular, writing songs about climate and Mother Earth.  

     Ahead of his time, Mr. Wolfe in the 1980’s built 60 passive solar/super insulated houses under Craig Wolfe Solar Design & Construction before interest in the energy crisis fell off the public’s radar.  He has worked as a consultant in Kansas City, Missouri and Kansas City, Kansas urban cores on housing projects, and has always been most interested in energy related activities. 

Remember… come early and have dinner, and assure yourself a seat.
