The Science Behind Climate Solutions (Drawdown DCIS series)
(Website with supporting resources - https://tinyurl.com/drawdowndcis)
The Delaware County Institute of Science is continuing its virtual engagement for DCIS members and the greater community in 2021 with a program to educate and engage individuals on the science and solutions to global warming. We will connect for monthly discussions lasting one hour, focusing on each of the Project Drawdown sectors, tapping into this international organization's efforts to reach "drawdown" (the point in the future when greenhouse gases in the atmosphere stop climbing and start to steadily decline). We all have a role we can play in addressing climate change, and the most important first step is to talk about this subject.
