Everyone Talks About The Weather
But What Are We Gonna Do About It?
To answer that question please join us at the SF Mime Troupe on Monday, February 25 at 7.30pm. Troupe friend Doug Nunn will present his Climate Reality Slide Show, which graphically illustrates why and how our environment is heating up and what we can do about it.
The 2007 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded jointly to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and former Vice President Al Gore "for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change." Part of Gore's work led him to found the Climate Reality Project, an organization which has trained more than 17,000 presenters, all with the goal of educating the public about the dangers of human caused climate change and the measures we need to take to overcome it.
In late 2018 Doug joined over 2200 Climate Reality trainees at the Los Angeles Convention Center where Al Gore and a group of educators, scientists, and political figures worked to pass on their scientific training, knowledge and passion. Nunn is now working to educate citizen groups on the realities of Climate Change and the work we need to do to begin the process of overcoming the damage being done. This free presentation at the Troupe is a part of Doug's effort to address community groups, school classrooms, and interested citizens over the next many months. The main questions Gore posits in The Climate Reality Project slide show are "Must we change?", "Can we change?" and "Will we change?"
Doug Nunn is a comic/improviser and recently retired teacher who has been an activist/environmentalist since his time at UC Berkeley in the early 1970s and has been a past contributing Troupe writer.
