GUEST SPEAKER: PROFESSOR JOSEPH BODOVITZ
CLIMATE CHANGE - WHAT’S AHEAD FOR CALIFORNIA
Please join Host David Jamison and the City Club of San Francisco in welcoming Professor Bodovitz to The Roundtable. Earth's climate is warming, its population is growing, and our country’s leadership is about to change radically. Decisions our generation makes will help determine the world of future generations. Already we can see the effects of climate change: it helped elect Donald Trump.
What’s ahead? Will China become the world’s leader as the US becomes ever more divided? How will California cope with climate change? What new inventions and innovations will help offset some of the problems we now foresee? (And the Trump/climate change connection will be explained).
Joseph Bodovitz has been involved for more than 50 years in California’s conflicts over population growth, economic development, and environmental protection. He was the first executive director of the SF Bay Conservation and Development Commission, and of the California Coastal Commission. Later, he was executive director of the California PUC. He was a Naval officer in the Korean conflict, and a newspaper reporter in San Francisco.
LUNCHEON WILL BE SERVED.
