An Evening with Climate Change Expert John Englander

San Francisco
6:00 p.m. | Monday, December 2, 2013

Sea level is expected to rise 55 inches across the San Francisco Bay Area by the end of the century and leading scientists expect an increase of 16 feet over the next 300 years. How do we plan for this inevitability and mitigate its potentially catastrophic effects to our region, its population and economy? John Englander, oceanographer and author, has become the clear and objective voice on climate change and oceans.

Join him for a discussion of the future of the bay and all that it encompasses, informed by decades of experience and numerous expeditions to both the poles and the ocean's floor.
