Have you wondered how climate change affects the way we produce energy? Do the ways we produce energy affect climate change? These dynamic interactions are a fascinating aspect of energy production and the choices we make to generate, store and conserve power, and how that is affected by water availability, land use, and population growth. Come to listen and be part of the discussion.

Dr. Ian Kraucunas, atmospheric division director at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is an expert on the interactions of climate and energy production and use, and regularly presents this information to government leaders, scientific panels, and advocacy groups around the nation. He leads a large fundamental science division at the laboratory doing research on a broad portfolio of atmospheric and global change investigations.

This is another in our series of informal gatherings where local scientists and climate change experts address concerns on topics and questions many people have raised about climate change. The event is sponsored by Citizens Climate Lobby of Tri-Cities, the local branch of the national organization.

Come at 6:00 pm for a social hour, where refreshments will be available (voluntary cash donations welcome!). The presentation begins at 7:00 pm. Held this month at the home of Tri-Cities CCL members Roger & Jennifer Ovink. The venue is up one flight of stairs.

Location 38 Vista Ct, Richland
