AAAS releases video and first board consensus statement on climate change

is changing," Holdren said in recent interviews. "As we see Inuit villages being forced to be relocated, away from the shoreline, we see a preview of the fate that is going to befall London, and Washington, D.C., and New York, and Boston, and Bombay, as sea level goes up worldwide."

AAAS expects up to 1,000 K-12 teachers, students, scientists, and others to take part Sunday, 18 February in the town hall meeting where attendees will cast instant-tally votes for their favorite global climate-change solutions.

Other highlights of the free public town hall meeting will include:

  • The first very large-scale, interactive demonstration of the Stabilization Wedge concept, a hands-on learning tool from Princeton University researchers that illustrates the impacts of different strategies for reducing greenhouse gases; and
  • A new global climate-change teaching guide from Project 2061, the science-education reform initiative at AAAS.

Speakers at the event will range from P. John Whitsett, President-Elect of the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), to climate guru Lonnie Thompson of Ohio State University, and AAAS President John P. Holdren, Director of the Woods Hole Research Center, who also serves as Teresa and John Heinz Professor of Environmental Policy at Harvard University.

The town hall meeting is free and open to the public, but attendees should pre-register online at http://www.aaas.org/climate ("Town Hall"). This event was planned under the auspices of the AAAS Center for Public Engagement with Science and Technology.
