How to Prepare for Climate Change

Wednesday, April 13 at 6:00 pm

Join us as we welcome David Pogue for a zoom presentation. He will be presenting on the topics discussed in his book, How to Prepare for Climate Change, and there will be Q & A afterward. The book offers sensible, deeply researched advice for how we can ready ourselves for the years ahead. Pogue walks readers through what to grow, what to eat, how to build, how to insure, where to invest, how to prepare your children and pets, and even where to consider relocating when the time comes. He also provides wise tips for managing your anxiety, as well as action plans for riding out every climate catastrophe, from superstorms and wildfires to ticks and epidemics.
