THIS IS A VIRTUAL PROGRAM. It will be held online using a virtual meeting service. Please register at this link to receive access information for the meeting, and follow the instructions to be ready to join us on April 22. Please email Adult Programming Librarian Maria with any questions!

Did you know that on the first Earth Day in 1970, 20 million Americans went to the streets to protest industrial air and water pollution that had threatened human health and nature? The Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act, and the creation of the EPA soon followed.  Can something similar be done to get climate change under control? 

Join the Nesmith Library on Wednesday, April 22nd at 6pm, as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day in a virtual event, "Climate Change: Science and Solutions.” Citizens' Climate volunteer, John Gage of Windham, will review what we know about climate change, discuss various approaches to address the problem, and show what each of us can do about it. Following the presentation, John will be available to answer questions and continue this important discussion. We'll conclude by sharing related online resources available through Nesmith Library. 

John Gage and his family have lived in Windham for over 25 years.  He has a B.S. in Biology from Boston College, worked at Sun Microsystems and Oracle for three decades on business integration systems, and now volunteers with Citizens' Climate Lobby (CCL.)  He leads the CCL NH South Central chapter and is the CCL NH State Coordinator.  CCL is a national, grassroots, nonpartisan group working to enable Congress to pass effective, fair, and beneficial legislation to address climate change in the form of the Energy Innovation Act (energyinnovationact.org
