Long-term climate change is currently estimated to eventually cost the US $250 billion per year. Mitigating climate change presents significant economic opportunities for private actors to support governments to build the resilience of communities, ecosystems, and economies through actions that reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Join us March 31 at 10 AM to hear a panel of experts discuss these problems and potential solutions. Price: $30 for Men’s Club and Women’s Auxiliary members: $40 for all other temple members and their guests. Brunch included. RSVP by March 25.
