Lucas Sabalka, Ph.D., of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, will speak at "Change: The Science, Why We Must Act and the Solutions at Hand," held from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 6, at the St. Louis Ethical Society, 9001 Clayton Road.
The lecture will be presented by Sabalka; Larry Lazar, analyst; and Brian Ettling, a ranger with Crater Lake National Park. An open forum will follow.
The three speakers are part of the Climate Reality Project, whose goal is to create a global movement to demand action on the climate crisis. This talk will focus on three aspects of climate change: the overwhelming scientific evidence and consensus showing humans are the cause; the moral, economic and self-preserving imperative to act now; and the affordable technology that already exists to address climate change and the actions each of us can take to build a better world.
