About the webinar:
The poignancy of the quote “If you really think that the environment is less important than the economy, try holding your breath while you count your money” by Dr. Guy McPherson is extremely hard to overlook. The clocks are ticking relentlessly while our planet is burning profusely, and if we don’t start now, we shall be dust and ashes in no time. Remarkable scientists, activists and health experts around the world are trying to implement new ways of dealing with the climate catastrophe and saving our world for generations to come.
Our luminary speakers, Kelly Wanser and Dr. Maria Neira, highlight how imperative it is to take action against the mitigated climate disasters and apply solutions to bend the escalating curve.
