Dumont Shade Tree Seminar, 7:30pm, March 7, 2016, at the Dumont Senior Center, 39 Dumont Avenue

Climate change and extreme weather has been a growing concern whose effects are being seen all around the world. Severe droughts, more powerful storm systems, and rising sea levels are a concern for everyone, but are certainly far too daunting for any one person to tackle. But there are things we can do as individuals and as part of a local community that can have an effect. The Dumont Shade Tree Commission has invited Tineke Thio, PhD. to deliver her lecture on the topic of global thinking/local action.  Dr. Tineke has done a great deal of research on the topic of individual contributions to the large issue of climate change and has delivered her seminars to school groups and local communities. Her lecture series is titled:  
Building Resilience in a Warming World
While the most serious consequences of global warming lie in the future, we can already feel the effects today. She examines the impact of climate change on our lives in New Jersey and what we can do about it, both as individuals and in our communities. Topics include options for cutting our carbon footprint in areas such as home maintenance, transportation,food, and planting trees. She will discuss ways we are adaptingto rising temperatures, extreme weather and rising sea levels. These measures often have health and financial benefits as a happy side effect.
Join us at the Dumont Senior Center 39 Dumont Avenue at 7:30pm March 7th 2016. The event is free to the community. Coffee and refreshments.
