Tuesday, Sept. 11, 7:30 pm. Biking the Americas for the Climate! Presentation and slide show by Stanford trained global warming scientist David Kroosma on his 20,000 mile journey by bike through North and South America, teaching people about global warming. This event is open to the public. Local, organic snacks and beverages will be served. Hosted by the Climate Protection Campaign, New College of California, the Sierra Club Redwood Chapter, and the Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition. David Kroodsma, a Stanford trained global warming scientist, has spent the past two years traveling by bicycle and teaching communities and students about global warming. He biked 16,000 miles from California to the southern tip of South America, and now has biked 4,000 miles from Boston to Seattle. He is now biking south, and will finish in the San Francisco Bay Area on September 15. On the journey across the U.S., he is joined by fellow climate expert Bill Bradlee. During this evening presentation, David and Bill will share great pictures, videos and stories about how climate change is affecting different regions of the continent. They talk about how global warming will both affect the far end of the earth, and your backyard, giving examples from their travels. The slideshow concludes with a discussion of what we can do, and about our special opportunity to make a difference as United States citizens. For more information visit http://www.rideforclimate.com
