The final presentation in a series of presentations on Climate & Sustainability by Sara Via, Ph.D., Professor, University of Maryland.

Because food, individual transportation and residential energy use cause at least 30% of US carbon emissions, individuals can make a difference when it comes to climate change! In this webinar, Dr. Via will discuss five ways to lower your carbon footprint by reducing residential energy use, covering the remaining power needs with renewables even if you don’t have a suitable roof, reducing miles traveled in your car and increasing miles per gallon, reducing food waste, and adopting a mostly plant-based diet. Many of these actions are free or low cost to implement and most will save you money.

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

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?

smithsonian environmental research center

A Smithsonian Environmental Research Center monthly evening lecture. Some of the most powerful solutions to climate change are right at our fingertips. Changing how we manage our land—through methods like sustainable farming, reforestation and restoring wetlands—could save up to a fifth of U.S. carbon emissions each year. That’s more powerful than taking every car in the U.S. off the road. Speakers: Susan Cook-Patton (The Nature Conservancy) and Ariana Sutton-Grier (University of Maryland), two scientists who helped highlight 21 “natural climate solutions” in a recent study from The Nature Conservancy, the Smithsonian and other organizations around the world. Discover how nature can help us conquer climate change, and how these solutions can be win-wins for the environment, business and human health. | Read more about 21 natural climate solutions | Full report in Science Advances
Free and open to all. Held in the Schmidt Conference Center. No RSVP required.
