As part of a global event, attend an updated presentation of Al Gore’s award-winning slideshow, “An Inconvenient Truth.”
As wildfires rage in the West and cities on the East Coast cope with rising seas, the Midwest and Illinois have climate worries of their own. Cynthia Linton will present a version of the Al Gore Slideshow, with emphasis on the latest information about impacts, such as extreme weather, adverse health conditions and economic damage. She will talk about some of the worldwide and local solutions and measures you can take at home and in your community. Whether you already follow the news on climate change, are looking to learn the basics, or want to know how to get involved, this presentation is for you.
Cynthia Linton was trained by Al Gore and Climate Reality in Seattle the summer of 2017 and was a mentor at the Gore training in Pittsburgh that fall. She has been a leader in the Chicago Chapter of Climate Reality and active with the Sierra Club. She is former executive editor of Lerner Newspapers and is now retired after 20 years of teaching in the master’s program at Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern. She recently coordinated two climate courses at Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) in 2017 and 2018. Cynthia lives in Chicago and has 6 grandchildren.
