‘Fire and Ice’: Global warming talk coming to South Lake (Updated 1/26)

UPDATE: Due to an increase in interest, the “Fire and Water” climate presentation has changed locations to accommodate more people. The event will now take place at Tahoe Valley Elementary School, located 943 Tahoe Island Dr. in South Lake Tahoe. The time will remain the same. The original story is as follows:

Climate change has been a hot topic of discussion this month, and the public will have one more chance to join the conversation this coming Tuesday at the South Lake Tahoe Library.

A presentation on climate change, how global warming is changing California’s weather and the path to a bipartisan solution will highlight the event, titled “Fire and Water.”

Environmental scientist Dana Nuccitelli, a risk assessor and climate blogger for The Guardian and SkepticalScience.com, will lead the discussion and answer questions regarding recent scientific research into “the possible links between climate change and California’s wildfires and drought, and projections of their future changes in a warming world,” according to an event flyer.

The dialogue will also touch on a proposed solution to issues related to global warming. Nuccitelli will be joined by a member of the Sacramento Chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby, who will also speak at the event.

“Fire and Ice” will run from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Jan. 27 at the library, located at 1000 Rufus Allen Blvd. For more information, contact Jeff Miner at jeffminer@etahoe.com or 530-577-7293.
