A Climate-Ready City: From Paris to Philadelphia

February 4, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

The Fifth Annual Richard L. James Lecture.

Just before 200 nations gathered in Paris to hammer out a climate change agreement, Philadelphia released its own report on how the city might adapt in the decades ahead.  Growing Stronger: Toward a Climate-Ready Philadelphianotes that 49 daily temperature records have been set here since 2000, 18 since 2010, and the Delaware River has risen about a foot in that last 100 years.  While Philadelphia historically suffered through 20 days of 90-degree temperature annually, thermometers now hit that number 40 times per year, a doubling.

Sarah Wu, Director for Planning in the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, presents the city’s key findings, and will be joined by a panel of leading Philadelphia scientists, activists, and policy experts working on a climate-ready Philadelphia.

We’ll involve you in the conversation as well.
