A CONSERVATIVE APPROACH TO SOLVING CLIMATE CHANGE

With Bob Inglis, former South Carolina Congressman and Executive Director of republicEn.org

4 p.m. Wednesday, February 24

It’s time for conservatives to step up and offer a free-enterprise solution to solve our nation’s climate challenges. And it’s important to get this right before the government gets it wrong – again. Free enterprise in the form of a revenue-neutral, border-adjustable carbon tax can lead the way. Bob Inglis is helping lead a bipartisan path forward on climate by engaging and building an EcoRight community of conservatives focused on a free-enterprise solution to climate change.


THE NEXUS OF OUR CLIMATE, OCEANS, AND SECURITY: CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES

With Retired Rear Admiral Jonathan White, United States Navy, (Navy) Rear, oceanographer and President/CEO of the Consortium for Ocean Leadership in Washington, DC

4 p.m. Wednesday, March 24

Climate change and harmful maritime activity are stressing our ocean, planet and nation, which in turn are diminishing our security and prosperity in many, interconnected ways. These impacts are compounded by increases in global population and associated competition for resources. Rear Admiral (Ret.) Jon White will describe the impact of these threats to our national security and what is being done (and what more can be done) to enable a secure and sustainable future for us all. 


THE COASTAL REAL ESTATE RECKONING IS ALREADY HAPPENING

With Professor Benjamin Keys, Rowan Family Foundation Associate Professor of Real Estate at the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania

4 p.m. Wednesday, April 21

Is a U.S. coastal housing bubble bursting? Under most climate forecasts, the question is not if but when property values will reflect expected sea level rise. In this talk, Professor Keys will describe research on how climate change is affecting housing and mortgage markets in coastal Florida, one of the most vulnerable coastline in the world with over 300,000 homes worth over $145 billion at risk to sea level rise. Solutions to restore confidence in coastal markets include substantial infrastructure improvements and asset repositioning to address the reality of rising seas.

Growing Climate Solutions: Path to Positive SWFL is featured in eco-America’s January Let’s Talk Climate program. Join us to hear about how SWFL is coming together around climate action and the work of FGCU in the formation of the SWFL Regional Resiliency Compact. Addressing climate challenges at the regional level has proved to be effective, as resiliency investments need to be coordinated across jurisdictional boundaries. Growing Climate Solutions is supporting this approach in SWFL, and we need the public’s support.
