Can This Planet Still Be Saved? A Special Common Ground with Jane Whitney

October 30 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

As climate change moves from an imminent peril to a deadly reality for vast swaths of the country, a panel of nationally recognized groundbreakers will discuss the gaping dichotomy between what scientists say needs to be done to moderate an impending disaster and the political reality of what is possible.
We will have a broad ranging discussion of the science, economics and politics swirling around the alarming climate change headlines. The panel will examine what state and local communities are doing to mitigate the congressional stasis, what might break the logjam, how the issues play in national, state and local elections and the role of private citizens and companies.
Christina Mittermeir, photographer and marine biologist who for the past 25 years has been working as a writer, conservationist and photographer.
Bill Weir, Correspondent and anchor for CNN, and the creator and host of the global documentary series “The Wonder List with┬áBill Weir”
David Wallace-Wells, New York Times and author of Uninhabitable Earth
