Recent climate change analyses have called for swift and extensive interventions to avert climate catastrophe. Although climate change poses significant threats to Arizona and beyond, society has not mobilized to address these challenges. In particular, ‘solutions’ put forward not only do not address the root driver of the problems they often prove counterproductive. This talk will outline why the solutions put forward will not solve the climate crisis and will instead put forward alternative interventions that society will need to implement if we hope to minimize future temperate increases and associated consequences. This event is free and open to the public. Please join us for an open discussion with Q & A session!
