Sedona AZ (November 19, 2019) – Northern Arizona Climate Change Alliance (NAZCCA) and Yavapai College Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) will feature a presentation and discussion on climate solutions by Dr. Sailesh Rao, from Phoenix.
Dr. Sailesh Rao will feature a presentation on “How Not to Go Extinct.” This talk examines the top causes of premature extinction on Earth – climate change, biodiversity loss, ecosystems collapse, chemical pollution and more. Discussion on how a nonviolent Eco-Vegan lifestyle mitigates all of these causes. With strong scientific evidence, it shows why we need to transition to a largely Vegan World to continue fulfilling this ecosystems role by 2026, seven short years from now, or risk our own extinction. The presentation will be held at Yavapai College, Sedona Center on Thursday, December 5th from 1:00pm – 3pm. Dr. Rao will give a PowerPoint presentation and then he will conduct a Q & A session.
