Robert Desmarais Sullivan - Social Justice Team, First Unitarian Universalist Church
Alicia Cook - 350.org
Climate change is upon us whether we want it or not. The skeptics deny that humans have anything to do with it, but very few of them deny it is happening. The Gillespie Breakfast will feature Robert Desmarais Sullivan and Alicia Cook -- both of the Unitarian Universalist Church and 350.org -- talking about what we can still do to prevent the worst effects of climate change, given that 150 or so countries, including the US, signed the Paris Climate Accords on Earth Day of this year. They will assume you agree that there are serious climate changes and that humans are partially responsible. The stated goal of the Paris Accords is reduction in fossil-fuel usage in order to keep the Earth's temperature within livable range. So some difficult choices must now be made. And quickly.
