This event is part I of this month’s ULaw CLE webinar series. Part II will be on Nov. 19 and is titled, “State Energy Transition to a Clean Energy Future.”


Though most acknowledge the reality of climate change, too many of us do not comprehend the science, the scale, and the urgency. The recently-released assessment by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) states, “The scale of recent changes across the climate system as a whole and the present state of many aspects of the climate system are unprecedented over many centuries to many thousands of years.” Understanding the complex issue of climate change is critical if we are  to address it. Please join Dr. Robert Davies of Utah State University for an engaging presentation on the latest climate science and how it is impacting Utah and our world. Dr. Davies is a physicist and educator whose work focuses on synthesizing and communicating a broad range of earth systems science. The panel will also feature Sarah Wright who is the Executive Director of Utah Clean Energy (, Utah’s leading public interest group advancing renewable energy and energy efficiency policy in Utah and the Western Region.
