Climate Briefing for Policy Makers & Public
Hawaii Climate Summit
Tuesday, October 14, 2014
We have added a briefing from 1:00-3:00 pm (in addition to the briefings at 10:00 am and 7:00 pm) to accommodate the overwhelming response. These free briefings will each take place at the Hawaii State Capitol Auditorium, 415 S. Beretania Street (Lower Level) on Tuesday, October 14.
They will be important briefings covering recent scientific observations on planetary changes and the substantial, accelerating impacts they will have on climate and life here in the Hawaiian Islands. Our islands are more vulnerable to the effects of climate change than any other place in America. The public, policy makers and business leaders all need to understand the coming changes and what they portend. This is vital emergency-climate-preparedness information.
Whether or not you think you are well informed about climate change, be prepared to be unprepared for what you will hear and see. The under-reported aspects of the causes, effects, risks and timing of climate change may significantly alter your worldview. Our situation can be mitigated if we take the warnings seriously.
Since time is short until October 14th, as a service to your colleagues, family and friends, please forward the email you received and its attachments widely, post in high visibility areas at work and in public spaces, social media, and place on email lists you subscribe to.
Three speakers will make presentations based upon research and on the ground observations of changes in the elements of Earth's ecosphere that will come to dominate our lives in the next couple of decades.
- Dr. Camilo Mora, University of Hawaii Associate Professor, lecturer and researcher with particular interests and expertise in Macroecology, Conservation Biology, and Biogeography.
- Keith Nealy, communications consultant specializing in Climate Change and the collapse of social and economic systems and has been a communications consultant to Exxon, AT&T, Forbes, Pfizer, SONY, American Express, Federal Express
- Stuart Scott, Deputy Director General of IESCO (International Ecological Safety Collaborative Organization), Chief Ecological Officer of NagaCorp, Ltd, international presenter and advisor and participant at UN climate negotiations.
This briefing is vital input for policy makers in the State of Hawaii, and for Oahu, Hawaii's most densely populated island.

||This is a relevant question, but not something relating to the climate briefing at the State Capitol. Plus you know the answer already. The answer is contained in the question. Thanks.|
