Climate Change in the Southland - Local Effects and Opportunities

desertification.jpgA recent UCLA study concluded that temperatures in the Los Angeles Region will rise an average of 4.6 degrees Fahrenheit if greenhouse gas emissions continue to increase at current levels. At the same time, California is a leader in energy and climate policy, working to combat the worst effects of such predictions. What does this all mean for local communities, especially those hit hard by poor air quality and challenging economic issues?

The faith community, in coordination with social, health, policy and environmental organizations, is leading the way for strong legislation aimed at addressing climate change, strengthening our economy, and cleaning up the air we breathe.

Come to this workshop to hear engaging presentations on a warming Los Angeles region; implementation of climate energy policy, especially as it relates to highly-impacted communities; health effects of regional pollution; and promising opportunities in the field of clean technology. There will be an "action" piece in which attendees will commit their congregations and organizations to actions that will strengthen the work already being undertaken in Los Angeles to address climate change and clean the air we breathe. The event will be in both Spanish and English.
