Join the Coast Range Association and Lincoln County Community Rights on Thursday, Nov. 21, for an informative talk focusing on striking new information on the Climate Crisis and the need for a national Green New Deal (GND). This event is hosted by Lincoln County Community Rights through their “Community Rights Action” series.
Building on 25 years of work to understand the human dimensions of coastal ecosystems — ocean, forests and rivers — Chuck Willer will discuss what a warming climate means for coastal communities. His discussion compares the economic mobilization of the GND to Oregon’s proposed cap and trade legislation that failed to pass the last legislative session.
Willer will explore the scale of the problem and outline the scale of the solution. While political leaders give the appearance of addressing the climate emergency, climate activist Greta Thunberg argues little to nothing is being done. What will a real climate solution look like for Lincoln County? And, when the political system finally addresses the emergency how might coastal Oregon prosper?
This is a scent-free event and is free to the public, though donations are gladly accepted. Refreshments will be served. All are welcome. The talk begins at 6:30 p.m. in the lower level meeting room of Atonement Lutheran Church, 2314 N Coast Highway 101 in Newport.
