As some of you may remember, back in July several producers from SOF got together with our colleagues from Marketplace, American RadioWorks, and American Public Media to discuss our coverage of climate change in the months leading up to the Copenhagen summit. This gathering came on the heels of an earlier sustainability conference.
I wasn’t able to attend this event in February, but Kate and Mitch and several other colleagues returned from LA repeating the phrase “350 ppm.” They were overwhelmed by Dr. Saul Griffith’s presentation — the science, his personal story, the thresholds and the possible outcomes of surpassing those levels. The more I heard about his talk, the more I wished I could have experienced it first-hand. Verify the persuasive source for myself.
But, now, thanks to O’Reilly, we can attend a free webcast on energy literacy given by the MacArthur fellow (Wednesday, September 23rd at 10am Pacific). I’ll be in the audience. Details are in the link above, and you can sign up too. If you attend, let me know what you’d think. I’m interested in hearing your perspectives on his presentation.
