    David Kline: A citizen's view of climate change and what to do about it

    David Kline is a retired energy policy analyst who now spends much of his time as a volunteer citizen lobbyist with Citizens' Climate Lobby. During his 22 years at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, he consulted with the U.S. and overseas governments on energy and climate policy and has published a number of related papers. Prior to NREL, he worked on oil and gas policy and planning in the public and private sector.
    David holds Ph.D. in Management Science and Engineering from Stanford.

    Program Description:

    Opening with a brief description of climate change as the problem of our age, this talk will focus primarily on the second half of its title: what we can do about it. Dr. Kline will discuss a proposed national climate policy that significantly reduces greenhouse gas emission, maintains economic growth, and protects our poorest citizens from the effects of increasing energy prices.

    He will also consider the practical politics of climate change, the state of discussions in Congress, and how we can effectively, and respectfully, communicate with those who hold differing views on climate change and climate policy.

    We will serve cheese and appetizers from 4:30 to 5:00, then start the program. A small donation is suggested for the food, and wine will be served.

    October 29, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
    Wolf Law Building, 2450 Kittredge Loop Dr, Boulder, CO 80305, USA

    As income disparity increases, the homeless population in the United States is growing. Whether it is due to our failing mental health system, lack of affordable substance abuse treatment, the opioid crisis, cultural dropping out or just plain poverty, each day, especially in communities such as Boulder, we see more and more people on the streets. Focusing on issues such as camping in public parks, begging, trespassing on public property, drinking and smoking in public and other similar violations - panelists will discuss what is the appropriate role of the police and the criminal justice system in interacting with the homeless.

    Panelists include:

    Mark Silverstein, Litigation Director of the ACLU
    Stan Garnett, former Boulder District Attorney and current partner at Brownstein, Hyatt, Farber and Schreck.
    Andrew Shoemaker, former Boulder City Council member and current partner at Shoemaker, Ghiselli and Schwartz.

    Joe Pelle, Boulder County Sheriff.

    Darren O'Connor, National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty Legal Intern, NAACP Boulder Branch Assistant Secretary, University of Denver Law National Lawyers Guild Chapter President.
