How the West Was Warmed
August 15, 2011 Leave a comment
How knowledgeable are you on the topic of climate change? If you live in Colorado, you really can’t afford not to be. Since publication of How the West Was Warmed: Responding to Climate Change in the Rockies in 2009, the topic has become politically charged, even while the scientific documentation of warming has mounted. Join water expert and editor Beth Conover this Thursday evening at 7:00 pm at Chautauqua Auditorium in Boulder, with other contributors of the book, to learn more about the future of water in Colorado. Conover (pictured below) is the founding partner of the consulting firm Econover, LLC, and was a policy advisor to then Denver mayor John Hickenlooper.
Governor Hickenlooper, filmmaker Peter McBride, Brad Udall, and others will join Conover in this discussion, which will open with a viewing of McBride’s short film, Chasing Water (seen here at the Mountain Film Festival in Telluride). Copies of How the West Was Warmed will also be sold and signed by the book’s contributors. This event is open to the public for $10, members $5 . Buy tickets here.
