Global warming message comes to Georgia Southern April 9
Lance Simmens, a Georgia Southern University alumnus, will bring the facts about global warming to campus Monday, April 9, at 7 p.m. in the College of Information Technology, Room 1004. He will present a multi-media slideshow that demonstrates the reality and impact of global warming. His presentation is free and open to the public.
‘As a father of two teenage sons and someone who has been deeply involved in public policy issues at the national, state, and local level for over 30 years, I believe this is the single most important issue of our generation,” said Simmens. “When my children and grandchildren ask me if I knew about the climate crisis and what I did to fight it, I want to honestly tell them I played a role in helping communities and individuals understand the seriousness of the issue and be made aware of potential solutions. We all need to understand the significance of this issue and learn how to be part of the solution.”
Simmens is part of the Climate Project, a non-profit group that aims to educate and engage citizens on the issue of global warming. Climate Project’s first initiative is training 1,000 lecturers who will deliver this compelling multimedia presentation.
