Join the Coos County Democrats and local environmental groups for a viewing of "An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power." A decade after An Inconvenient Truth (2006) brought climate change to the heart of popular culture, the follow-up shows just how close we are to a real energy revolution.
Q&A with Al Solomon, PhD, will follow the film.
Dr. Solomon, Ph.D, is a plant ecologist who has studied the terrestrial ecology of the global carbon cycle and its climate change responses since 1977. He authored over 90 research papers (65 dealing with global change) in peer reviewed scientific journals, as published reports, book chapters or as edited books.
He was assistant professor at the University of Arizona and tenured full professor at Michigan Technological University; served as a staff ecologist at Oak Ridge National Laboratory; senior global change research ecologist at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency; senior policy analyst at the White House science office (OSTP); and program leader at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) in Vienna, Austria. He retired in 2009 as the National Program Leader for Global Change Research in the U.S. Forest Service.
