2:00 pm - Climate Change Now: A conversation with national experts Radley Horton and David Gelber

April 6 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join us for a conversation with two nationally known climate experts, who also happen to be Garrison residents! Radley is a distinguished climate scientist at Columbia. David is a journalist and filmmaker whose Emmy-winning Showtime series, Years of Living Dangerously, focused on the climate crisis. We’re living at a critical moment in the climate story, and things could go either way. Radley and David think surprisingly hopeful signs are emerging in what’s usually portrayed as a fairly bleak picture. We hope you’ll join us for the conversation.

Register here!
