"The Climate Emergency: The Case for Immediate Action"
The climate crisis is real. But what are the facts? What are the threats that we face? Where are the opportunities going forward? If the climate emergency is an existential threat to life on the planet, does our response reflect that of an emergency? What can and must individuals do to avert the worst consequences of the climate crisis? How does Drawdown offer new opportunities for response?
As part of Craig Wolfe’s role in Al Gore's Climate Reality Leadership Corps, he uses slides prepared by the Climate Reality Project. He combines these with his own slides to demonstrate the seriousness of the climate emergency and to provide actions we must take before the clock runs out on our window of opportunity.
Craig has promised he will grace us with some music.

About the Speaker:
Craig Wolfe is President of the Heartland Renewable Energy Society; founder of the vlog, The Soular Project; co-founder of the KC Climate Coalition; a long-time activist with Kansas Sierra Club; and singer/songwriter in the group Soular, writing songs about climate and Mother Earth.
Ahead of his time, Mr. Wolfe in the 1980’s built 60 passive solar/super insulated houses under Craig Wolfe Solar Design & Construction before interest in the energy crisis fell off the public’s radar. He has worked as a consultant on housing projects in the urban core of KCMO and KCK, and has always been most interested in energy related activities.
