Event Information

The Bucks County Community College Sustainability Team presents "Climate Reality: 2013 Update". Steve Bacher, Sustainability Team member and Director of e-Marketing for Bucks County Community College, presents the latest science in an updated version of the slide show made famous by Al Gore in the movie, An Inconvenient Truth.

The presentation is free and open to the public. Presented in Tyler 128 at three times for your convenience: Wednesday, Oct. 16 at noon and Thursday, Oct. 17 at 12:30 and 7:30 p.m.

Over the next several months, groups across the world are engaging communities to discuss and learn of the realities of global climate change and how strategies can be put in place to lower carbon dioxide emissions and lessen impacts.

2012 went down in history as the warmest year on record. Melting polar ice caps, catastrophic storms and prolonged droughts all point to climate change as a serious international crisis with devastating consequences for human life.

In 2013, Climate Reality Leadership Corps Trainings were held in Chicago and Istanbul. There are now nearly 6,000 trained Climate Leaders in more than 100 countries educating their communities about climate change. Each of them has been personally trained by former Vice President Al Gore, Chairman of the Climate Reality Project. Bacher was among 1200 people trained by Gore in Chicago this summer.
