THE RIPPLE EFFECT
We recognized Dr. Ripple's work and potential impact on the conversation around climate change back in 2017. After the overwhelming response to our first public lecture with Dr. Ripple at Worthy, we sponsored a statewide lecture series with the goal of shedding light on our global climate crisis and presenting compelling research that leads to decisive public and legislative action. We continue to support Dr. Ripple's research and are proud to be an important funder for his latest work to gain international attention, the "World Scientists' Warning of a Climate Emergency."
