Town Hall to Explore How Santa Barbara Will Face Climate Change

The Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History invites guests to the town hall forum “Global Warning! How Will Santa Barbara Face Climate Change?” at 7 p.m. Thursday in the museum’s Fleischmann Auditorium.

Join local leaders representing the city, educational institutions and local companies as they participate in a conversation that matters regarding how Santa Barbara is impacted by climate change, what is being done and what can be done in the future to prevent the acceleration of global warming.

The town hall panel will include Dave Davis, president and CEO of the Community Environmental Council; Frank Davis, director of the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis, and professor at the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management; John Ledbetter, principal planner for the City of Santa Barbara Planning Division; Bruce Allen, co-founder of SOS California; and John Jostes, nationally recognized environmental and public policy mediator, and visiting faculty at the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management.

The conversation will be moderated by Stan Roden, mediation arbitration specialist.

“Global Warning! How Will Santa Barbara Face Climate Change?” is presented by the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History and is sponsored in part by the Santa Barbara Foundation.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
