Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore will discuss climate change in Hawaii at the Stan Sheriff Center Tuesday, 7 p.m. April 15.
Tickets are free to the public to this statewide conference at the Stan Sheriff Center Ticket Office or tickets are available online at etickethawaii.com.
Al Gore’s movie, “An Inconvenient Truth,” aimed to call attention to the dangers society faces from climate change, and suggested urgent actions that need to be taken immediately. In brief, Al Gore has the right idea–climate change is an urgent issue that requires immediate action.
“Vice President Gore has been a true friend and ally in the climate change fight. He is a leading voice on clean energy and I am honored he is joining us to discuss Hawai’i’s future,” said Brian Schatz, chairman of the Senate Water and Power Energy Subcommittee.
Vice President Al Gor will address in his presentation the Development of a New Social Contract for Public Investment in a Green Future by the University of Hawai’i and U.S. Senator Schatz. Topics will include renewable energy, sustainable energy, and water use and the impacts of human practice and climate change on essential resources.
“We hope the discussion about sustainability and climate change have a lasting impact and will push Hawai’i into the global Arena,” says UH Manoa Chancellor Tom Apple.
