Climate Truths And Inconveniences: The Adirondack Experiences

“Polar Vortex” was a new concept added to our lexicon earlier this year as we experienced one of the coldest Januarys in recent history. An Antarctic glaciology research team gets trapped in a massive summer ice flow. The Adirondacks are still recovering from the wrath of severe tropical storms, as the memories of Hurricanes Irene and Sandy linger. Are these events counted among the dots in need of being connected to human-induced climate change?

ADK member and science librarian (University at Buffalo) Fred Stoss was trained in 2007 and 2010 by former Vice President Al Gore, to give Mr. Gore’s climate change slide presentations. Fred has served Mr. Gore’s nonprofit organization, the Climate Reality Project, as a Mentor, assisting in the training of new presenters in 2012 (including his daughter, Kaeti, an Earth Science teacher) and 2013. Fred will engage us with the most current version of Mr. Gore’s “Climate Reality” presentation, and include information from the original presentation that served as the basis for Mr. Gore’s documentary film and books, “An Inconvenient Truth” “and Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis”. He will add additional resources discussing climate change impacts to the Adirondacks and other locations in New York State.

6:30 PM Social Hour -- Help us celebrate Larry Telle's and Bob Krenzer's induction into the High Summit Honor Society.
