Getting to Zero: From Radical to Rational
Carbon Drawdown for Eagle County

RSVP HERE

Carbon over-loading in the atmosphere is real, it is excessive, it is unprecedented and it threatens our way of life across the globe.  Drawing down carbon levels requires urgent, effective and rational action by all communities now.  Our Eagle County community has understood the need to act at the local level with the establishment of the Climate Action Collaborative.  Through the guidance of the Climate Action Collaborative, the Eagle County community has reduced emissions, but it is time to expand and accelerate our climate action efforts.

The Climate Action Collaborative is fortunate to present an evening with Dr. Robert Davies, Utah State University professor, who will provide a vivid explanation of climate change science and why it is essential to understand the gravity and scale of the challenge before us. A panel of local leaders will follow Dr. Davies’ presentation to discuss current local action at an individual, business, and government level, as well as, visionary next steps to implement large-scale climate action policies and programs within and for our community. Immediately following the event please join us for a reception where attendees can engage one-on-one with leaders in our community and learn how they can accelerate their own involvement in local climate work. We hope you will not miss this critically important opportunity to understand the greatest challenge of our times and the actions that you can take now to participate in the solutions.

Dr. Robert Davies is a physicist and Associate Professor of Professional Practice at Utah State University.  His work on global environmental change and sustainable human systems has been recognized for more than a decade in critical science communications.  Dr. Davies has delivered hundreds of public lectures to civic organizations, policymakers, municipal boards and schools on the topics of climate change, human sustainability, and science communication.

We urge you to attend this special opportunity to understand climate change and solutions as you may never have before.
