Climate Change Reality Presentation Tonight

New Haven-based lawyer and land use specialist Marjorie Shansky will be offering a compelling “Climate Reality Presentation” to community members for free at Middletown’s Russell Library at 7 pm tonight (Monday, November 14.)

Founded and chaired by Al Gore, Nobel Laureate and former Vice President of the United States, The Climate Reality Project has more than 5 million members and supporters worldwide. It is guided by one simple assertion: The climate crisis is real and we know how to solve it. The Climate Reality Project is bringing the facts about the climate crisis into the mainstream and engaging the public in conversation about how to solve it. It is designed to help citizens around the world discover the truth and take meaningful steps to bring about change.

Ms. Shansky is one of a handful of experts trained by Mr. Gore to bring these presentations to communities around the world. The hour-long presentation will include visual documentation and a chance for dialog with audience. People from all sides of the Climate Change discussion – or on no side at all – are welcome to attend.

This presentation is being co-sponsored by several Middletown-based organizations, including ARTFARM, the Jonah Center for Earth and Art, Earth Ministry, Middlesex Community College Sustainability Team and Wesleyan University. The presentation will be held in the Hubbard Room at Russell Library, 123 Broad Street, Midletown.
