HLP Students Invite Author to Speak on Global Warming: Friday, April 13 at Noon.

Ready or not, we’re Generation Hot.

Come join us for a robust discussion on how to deal with climate change in your immediate future.

Change is happening. You can do something right now. Whether you believe we are the cause or not, this planet is getting hotter. Stronger storms, faster floods, and longer droughts will challenge all of us in ways we can hardly conceive. We might not yet be ready to give up oil and coal to mitigate our problems, but there are other ways to begin to have an impact now—if we act with vigilance and commitment. For example, if we build stronger levees, plant more trees, research geo-engineering, and even paint our roofs white, we can collectively overcome some of the challenges that lie ahead.  Foremost, though, we need visionary leadership and bold policy interventions to meet the most immense challenges squarely and effectively.

 

How will our generation—“Generation HOT”—face these realities? 

 

Come, and you’ll hear about options for coping with climate change that may surprise you.
