September 12, 2019 -  Dr. Brian Henning: Rotary & Climate, In the World and in Spokane.

The Rotarian magazine dedicated its entire April issue to the need to meet the climate challenge worldwide, even as smoky Spokane struggles with longer fire seasons, shorter ski seasons, and political debates over our role in solutions. 

So join Dr. Brian Henning, head of Gonzaga University's Department of Environmental Studies, for a look beyond the politics of climate change to see what the numbers say about what to expect and what we can do, both as engaged Spokanites and as citizens of a warming world. 
Program coordinated by David Camp.
