The climate crisis is the biggest issue facing humans and the natural environment in the 21st century.

This five-part course will help people be better informed about the scope of the crisis and the science behind this issue. Each class will last about an hour and a half, with opportunity for discussion. Our speaker, Bill Young, has a great thirst for knowledge and the ability to communicate complex issues in an understandable narrative.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Overview of climate concepts and issues

  • Greenhouse gases

  • Effects on birds and biodiversity

  • Fossil fuels

  • Transportation and agriculture

This class will be followed on Thursday, October 5, by a free Climate Crisis Action & Advocacy Workshop with Bill Young and Board Member Tom Wood. This program is open to all. Please post to social media and invite your friends & family to participate. The workshop will provide participants with suggestions for actions that we can all take to push back on the effects of climate change. We hope that participants in this lecture series will attend that workshop.

Bill Young is a writer who lives in Arlington. He is the co-creator (with Ashley Bradford) of the MPNature.com website, and he has taught numerous classes for ASNV.
