This fall, join us at Alum Rock Branch Library for a three-part series of community discussions about climate change and extreme weather events. Part book club and part science café, this is a chance to talk with NOAA meteorologist Brian Garcia from the National Weather Service’s Bay Area forecast office and your neighbors about issues that matter to all of us.
At each program, we watch a short video about Americans who have responded and adjusted to climate changes and extreme weather events in their communities, and then will have a group discussion about the videos and the weather and climate related issues that impact our daily lives right here in San Jose.
Light refreshments will be served, and we will be giving away Kill-a-Watt meters (to measure the energy efficiency of your home appliances) and single ride gift codes for use any Ford GoBike bike share station.
The week of September 16, will have a theme of CHANGE.
We'll discuss how climate change and extreme weather may affect the local economy and daily life. We’ll explore ways you and your community can develop innovative, solution-oriented ideas that build resiliency and protect the environment.
For the September 16 program, Santa Clara County Supervisor Dave Cortese (District 3) will be joining us, to provide information about a resolution he put forth to affirm the County Board of Supervisors' commitment to the Paris Climate Accord and the County Coalition he is creating across the country to combat climate change.
