    PDA logo redone 11232008“Taking on the Global Climate Crisis:  Political Policy and Public Action”.

     The Global Climate Crisis is already happening with extreme heat events, drought, extreme and extraordinary storms with climate chaos, but there is disturbing little political action and leadership in our own community and State and Nation.  There are many ways in which we each can personally get involved NOW, before it is really too late.

    This program will provide information on expected climate change in our own Southwestern communities and review the National and State and local actions that PDA has supported and encouraged to address Climate Change and ensuing chaos.  The program will also feature a panel of speakers from the “Climate Smart Southwest” Conference and Project Working Groups to address 6 health related climate change vulnerabilities in our own community.
