Most Americans across party lines recognize climate change is happening, but many do not know how it will impact them directly and whether there is urgency to address it. On Wednesday*, January 8, 2020 at 7pm at the Hopewell Theater, Hopewell Public Library will present the C-Change Primer, a different kind of talk about climate change.
The Primer focuses on facts from trusted sources, on actual and perceived risks, on human issues, not political ones. All Hopewell Public Library talks are free and open to the public.
C-Change Conversations, a Princeton-based nonprofit organization, developed the Primer in consultation with independent climate scientists and public policy specialists. The Primer has been endorsed by moderate and conservative business, political, and social leaders and enthusiastically received by audiences of more than 7,500 people in 28 states.
The organization is comprised of business, legal, media, and medical professionals, including Sophie Glovier, who will present the Primer. Sophie works with nonprofits, early-stage companies, and local government to create a more sustainable society. She is a graduate of Princeton University and Columbia Business School.
The Primer presents clear, unbiased information that helps people understand how climate change will affect them personally, with an emphasis on how our changing environment is affecting our health, national security and the global economy. It answers many of the questions most Americans have about climate change, such as: How do we know climate change is real and is caused by humans? What is the scientific consensus? What are the dangers? Is there hope?
