Noon - 1:00 p.m.   

The Climate Crisis Has A Remedy
. . . If We Act NOW 

The Secretary General of the United Nations, António Guterres, recently declared a "code red" for the world. What scientific facts led to this warning? What are the remedies to avoid a planetary cataclysm? How long do we have?  See the recent press release about the latest UN report "United in Science".

 

Rod Diridon, Sr., Mineta Transportation Institute Executive Director Emeritus, will discuss this lightning rod topic. Rod is a well known and respected public figure who chaired the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors and Transit Board six times during a 20 year tenure.    

 

He has chaired more than 100 local, state, national, and international transportation and environmental programs most notably the Bay Area's three regional governments, the American Public Transportation Association, and the California, U.S., and International High Speed Rail Authorities and Associations. He also chaired the National Research Council's Transit Research Board and a 1996 research panel on "Combating Global Warming with Sustainable Transit Policies." Read his biography.
