Tri Climate Action invites you to come and hear guest speaker Dr. William McPherson share his thoughts on the Paris Climate Accord.
The Paris Agreement is an accord signed by 195 countries, virtually all of the countries in the world. It has two main objectives: keeping global temperature increases “well below” 2 degrees Centigrade (ideally below 1.5 degrees C), and reducing carbon emissions to net zero levels by 2050. The Trump Administration has declared that the U.S. will withdraw from the agreement, reflecting the influence of climate deniers on U.S.polity. Dr. McPherson, who attended the Paris negotiations, has written three books on climate denial and will speak about how denial has influenced U.S. policy.
