On Wednesday, October 20, 2021, from 7-8:30pm, First Congregational Church of Akron will host a virtual event, Climate Change: An Emergency in Slow Motion. This presentation, addressing the causes and impacts of Climate Change and, most importantly, solutions that already exist, will feature guest speaker Dr. Eric Schreiber.
As a physician, Dr. Schreiber regards climate change as a major public health hazard. Dr. Schreiber first became aware of global warming as a curiosity during his study of physics and chemistry as an undergraduate student. The serious nature of the problem became more apparent in the 1980’s as a few climate scientists began to sound the alarm that change was occurring far more rapidly than initially anticipated.
