2020 tied (with 2016) for the record of hottest global average temperature since record-keeping began. Last year also saw more wildfires in California than any other single year, and more significant storms built up over the warming waters of the mid-Atlantic than any other year. In recent polls by Yale University, the majority of Americans have expressed alarm at these trends, and suggest we should take serious action.
The Biden Administration lists climate as one of its top priorities. Under the new President, the U.S. has already re-entered the Paris Climate Accords and created two new high-level climate-related positions in the Administration: a Special Presidential Envoy for Climate – John Kerry; and a National Climate Advisor – Gina McCarthy. In addition, as Treasury Secretary, Biden appointed Janet Yellen, who has led a national effort by many economists to put a price on carbon emissions.
For our February 16th ZOOM webinar, we are pleased to present Corte Madera Vice Mayor David Kunhardt. Mr. Kunhardt has been a leader on climate and other environmental issues for many years. His presentation will provide an update on some of the most significant climate trends, then will turn to a discussion of the most promising actions we can take to mitigate the worst outcomes, including both national and local initiatives.
