Cupertino event to discuss Arctic climate change

With climate change continuing to be a hot topic among West Valley residents, one event in Cupertino this coming week is hoping to tap into the energy and shed some new light.

Organized by the Climate Reality Project of Santa Clara County, Dr. Gary Latshaw will lead the presentation with County Supervisor Dave Cortese as the special guest.

According to event information, the conversation “will focus on the drastic decline in Arctic sea ice and why a major international effort is required to restore the ice from further deterioration.”

The Arctic, and its ice, is critical to controlling sea temperatures, greenhouse gas capturing, and global weather patterns. Scientists have raised concerns for many years on the potential harm from a loss of Arctic sea ice to vulnerable populations and communities worldwide.

In addition to its focus on the deterioration of sea ice, the event will discuss methods to delay or help stabilize the ice from further decay.

This climate-focused gathering is Monday, February 24, running from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Quinlan Community Center, 10185 N Stelling Rd., in Cupertino is hosting the event.
