James Hansen, former director of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies and adjunct professor at Columbia University’s Earth Institute, is the keynote speaker at Operation Sierra Storm on Jan. 8 at Harveys in Stateline.
Hansen’s presentation will include his take on assuring real progress on climate — whether and how an international climate accord can achieve intergenerational and global justice.
His testimony on climate change to congressional committees in the 1980s helped raise broad awareness of the global warming issue. He was designated by Time magazine in 2006 as one of the 100 most influential people on Earth.
Bernice Notenboom, climate journalist, science writer will also share her latest excursions of the North Pole and discuss her film “The Arctic March” that is soon to be released.
Notenboom will talk from 7:45-9am and Hansen from 9:15-10:30am; both in the Cabaret Theatre.
