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.
The week of November 4, will have a theme of STRATEGY.
For this program, we will be joined by Paul Fleischman, author of Eyes Wide Open: Going Behind the Environmental Headlines. Fleischman is an award winning author of fiction, poetry, and non-fiction for children, teens, and adults.
We'll discuss adaptive strategies for managing environmental challenges — from droughts to flooding — that affect your homes and communities. With long term improvements in mind, we’ll generate ideas that can take root in your backyards.
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.
