Where do we stand in the war on global warming? Rick Jahnke, Admiralty Audubon president and professor emeritus, Skidaway Institute of Oceanography, will address the question in Admiralty Audubon’s April 18, 2019 community program at the Community Center in uptown Port Townsend. The 7:00 pm event is free and open to the public.
As the Green New Deal is discussed and as we evaluate our own governor’s run for the presidency based largely on a platform of mitigating climate change, it is appropriate to evaluate where we are in our efforts to curb global warming.
This presentation will review where we stand and to what extent the implementation of renewable energy sources and other emission-reducing strategies have slowed the fundamental causes of global warming. We will examine whether consequences predicted from climate change are locally observable in such parameters as our resident and migratory bird populations and local sea level rise.
