Library Talk – April 29th at 6PM
How can each of us live cooler and smarter? While the routine decisions that shape our days—what to have for dinner, where to shop, how to get to work—may seem small, collectively they have a big effect on global warming. But which changes in our lifestyles might make the biggest difference to the climate?Join us for a discussion with John Rogers, a senior energy analyst at the Union of Concerned Scientists and co-author of the science-based guide Cooler Smarter: Practical Steps for Low-Carbon Living. Based on an in-depth, two-year study by the experts at the Union of Concerned Scientists, Cooler Smarter shows you the most effective ways to cut your own global warming emissions by 20 percent or more, and explains why your individual contribution is so vital to addressing this global problem. The advice in Cooler Smarter can help save you money and live healthier. But its central purpose is to empower you, through low carbon-living, to confront one of society’s greatest threats.
