KINGSTON, N.Y. – On Saturday, December 2, 2017, at 2 p.m., Tim Guinee, actor and a leader at the Climate Reality Project, will visit the Hudson River Maritime Museum for “Climate Change and the Hudson Valley,” a presentation and discussion of the latest science concerning climate change in our area and across North America.
“We’re delighted that Tim is coming to the Museum to discuss this topic, which is of concern to anyone who lives or works along the waterfront,” says HRMM Executive Director Lisa Cline.
Founded by Nobel Laureate and former Vice President Al Gore, the Climate Reality Project (www.climaterealityproject.org/) is a diverse group of individuals who seek to catalyze a global solution to the climate crisis by supporting urgent action across every level of society. Guinee’s presentation will use the same deck of images that Vice President Gore uses when the tours the country. Afterwards, he will lead a panel discussion among local elected officials and experts about the implications of climate change for the Hudson Valley.
The event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited and reservations are required. Reserve online now.
In addition to his work at the Climate Reality Project, Guinee is a board member of Green Product Placement, which seeks to place environmentally friendly products in motion pictures and television shows. A long-time environmental advocate, he has worked on behalf of the Sierra Club as a volunteer lobbyist in Washington D.C., and has collaborated with politicians from both parties.
