Karl Hutterer, former executive director of the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, will talk about climate change at the Santa Barbara Audubon Society's next program, 7:30 p.m. Sept. 27 in Farrand Hall at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, 2559 Puesta del Sol.

Doors open at 7 p.m. for the free event.

For the past several years, Hutterer has focused his energy on advancing climate change literacy.

He will begin his talk by summarizing some of the basic facts about climate change: Where we currently are in terms of changing climates and their effects, and what experts are predicting. Then he will address what each of us can do to help our planet “break the fever.”

Hutterer earned his Ph.D. from the University of Hawaii. He came to Santa Barbara in 2000 to assume the executive directorship of the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History.

Since retiring in 2013, he has volunteered with several nonprofits and is currently on the board of directors of the Community Environmental Council of Santa Barbara.

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!
