The Southborough Green Technology and Recycling Committee is continuing its efforts to educate the public on the impact we have on our environment.
Chair Carl Guyer will host another “400 and Rising” climate change presentation this month. The discussion will take place Thursday, January 29 at 7:00 pm at the Southborough Library.
He has also shared his video of the slide show (above).
The committee’s intention is to help with “Understanding the Magnitude and Impact of CO2 Emissions“.
- The impact carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are having on the earth’s atmosphere and the existence of life on the planet.
- How presently one third of the most important life enabling chemical element, carbon, is now sourced from fossil fuels.
- Data demonstrating the recent unprecedented rise in the concentration of atmospheric CO2, the source, and why so many are concerned.
- How to take action right here in our own town.
Guyer also shared another interesting video below, this one by by climate central.
It’s a 1 minute visual demonstration of changing temperature records.
Produced in November, it refers to likelihood of 2014 breaking a new record for hottest year. That outcome was reported as confirmed this week. (See Scientific America’s article):
