Climate Change is Bad for Your Health

One in a series of presentations on Climate & Sustainability by Sara Via, Ph.D., Professor, University of Maryland. She will address the concept that increasing summer heat (and winter cold in some areas), more severe flooding from storms and more frequent tidal flooding are health hazards. Learn how to protect yourself and your family and how the social determinants of health make the health burden of climate change unequal among communities.

Dr. Via was one of the speakers at our Climate Change and Your Food Supply talk last July. Read more.

One in a series of presentations on Climate & Sustainability by Sara Via, Ph.D., Professor, University of Maryland. She will address the concept that individuals CAN make a difference as we work for policy changes. Key actions include reducing food waste, moving toward a plant-based diet and reducing the climate impact of our personal transportation needs.

The similarities between the failed US responses to COVID-19 and Climate Change are remarkable, right down to the role of politics. How can we use lessons learned during this pandemic to motivate people to take climate change seriously, to recognize the importance of early action, to focus on science-based solutions and to see the need to advance social equity?

annapolis green readsJoin Annapolis Green for the inaugural meeting of our environmental book club, Annapolis Green Reads, to grow your appreciation for the environment while benefiting from the collective wisdom of many authors who write about our natural world and to connect with others!

All you need is an interest in reading books (or listening to the audio version) about our environment and our place in it. No expertise on these issues is necessary, although we welcome those who have some to participate and contribute.

For the moment, our club will meet virtually on Zoom so we can see each other and have a meaningful discussion not only of the book described below, but also of what we want this club to be moving forward.

We will begin with The Future We Choose: Surviving the Climate Crisis by Christiana Figueres and Tom Rivett-Carnac. They have written this book recently and it is both cautionary and hopeful. Given that we are already dealing with so much uncertainty in our lives, a more optimistic first read with suggestions for actions that we can take seems like a good first discussion. More about the book.

We’re excited to introduce you to Karen Grumbles who will lead our book club and first discussion on Wednesday, April 29 at 7 pm via Zoom.

Details here.

Drive Electric Virtual Earth Day

Join Annapolis Green to learn VIRTUALLY about about driving electric — one of the best things you can do to mitigate the effects of Climate Change. The EV Earth Day Showcase was to have been presented by Annapolis Green during the Severna Park Earth Day Festival and as part of the national Drive Electric Earth Day event but we’re going virtual instead.

Click to see our video, produced with the Electric Vehicle Association of Greater DC (EVADC).

Then join us on Tuesday, April 28, for a Zoom event designed to answer all your questions about driving electric. Details posted here.

Eastport Yacht Club’s Environmental Committee presents a talk by Dr. Rita Colwell, Distinguished Professor, University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins University and environmental microbiologist specializing in infectious diseases. She is a former director of the National Science Foundation.

Dr. Colwell will discuss the link between Climate Change and human health at the global and local level and answer questions about infectious diseases such as COVID-19.

To participate in the meeting, please register at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0a44adad2ea0fe3-earth

You will be sent meeting information with ID and password in advance of the event.

smithsonian environmental research centerA Smithsonian Environmental Research Center monthly evening lecture. Speaker: Jennifer Biddle, University of Delaware. She will discuss Horseshoe crabs, a species that has been inhabiting Delaware Bay for millions of years, but faces new threats from pollution, land use and climate change. However, invisible to the naked eye, an army of microbes has formed quiet partnerships with the crabs. In this talk, marine biologist Jen Biddle will explore world of horseshoe crabs and their microbes, and the clues these organisms hold for new medicines and the crabs’ changing place in the environment.
