Former Arlington County Board Chair and Managing Partner of DMV Strategic Advisors Jay Fisette will present the Climate Reality Project, Al Gore’s latest slide deck on the climate crisis and solutions. The presentation will dramatically convey the tangible impacts and broad challenges we face, the progress we have made, and the path forward.

He will also speak to the status of Arlington’s response to climate change and highlight the proposed changes to Arlington’s Community Energy Plan, scheduled for County Board adoption by early summer.  How is our health, food, and water being affected? Are renewables really working?  Where are the electric vehicles? What more can individuals do? Can we really avert disaster? 

A Q&A session will follow the presentation.
