Climate Change Coming Home with Bill Bradbury

On March 8th, the Chetco Community Public Library and Friends of the Chetco Library in Brookings, OR, present “Climate Change Coming Home”, a presentation by Bill Bradbury.

The former Oregon Secretary of State and State Senator (and former OEC board member) will discuss climate change and its effects on our region. He’ll also be available to answer questions from community members.

Currently serving as one of Oregon’s two representatives to the Northwest Power and Conservation Council, Bill was one of the first fifty speakers trained to deliver former Vice President Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” talk. Since then he has spoken on climate change to over 400 audiences in Oregon and beyond.

The event will be held Wednesday, March 8th, 2017 at 6:00pm in the Chetco Library’s large meeting room, 405 Alder Street, Brookings. Admission is free.

For more information go online to www.chetcolibrary.org or to Chetco Library’s Facebook page, or call the library at (541) 469-7738.

    Mr. Bradbury did an excellent job. This seminar was extremely eye-opening. I left feeling somewhat relieved that progress is being made, but also dismayed about how exponentially fast climate change has been accelerating over the past 3 or 4 decades. Thank you, Mr. Bradbury, for making the trip down to our little rural corner of the state and enlightening us. Keep up the great work!
