THE CLIMATE REALITY PROJECT
March 14, 2014 – Social Time 6:30 (snacks welcome) Program 7:00
In 2006, Al Gore’s Academy Award-winning documentary “An Inconvenient Truth” hit theaters. Many of us thought it surely would wake the world up to the reality of the climate crisis. But the response was underwhelming, and the disastrous effects of climate change grow in intensity and frequency. Angela Conroy is a leader in the Climate Reality Project, a program founded by Al Gore. It is dedicated to unleashing a global cultural movement demanding action on the climate crisis. Angela will share some of the current data on climate change and describe the program and various ways people can get involved.
Angela Conroy holds an MBA and an MS in Environmental Management (concentration in energy resources management and policy) from the University of Maryland, a BS in Environmental Science from Ferrum College. She is certified as a Sustainable Development Professional by the Association of Energy Engineers. She currently serves as program and outreach director for environmental sustainability at the Cabell Brand Center and as a senior expert and environmental consultant for ICF International.
