Connections: Climate Change & "Climate Smart Communities"

The Sierra Club hosted an event focusing on climate change. What can we do to curb the warming trends? A recent UN study finds that we'd have to cut emissions between 41% and 72% by 2050 to have a chance to prevent severe atmospheric consequences. Those are enormous numbers, and we'll explore what kind of economic effect it would have on a country trying to reach them. 

Guests include: Mark Lowery, Manager of the Climate Smart Community Program of New York State.
