NewsThe Inconvenient Truth Climate Project Comes to Marlboro
Presentation sponsored in part by Marlboro’s MBA in Managing for Sustainability
Marlboro, VT (Feb. 2, 2007) – Paulina Essunger will present a slide show at Marlboro College on February 12 AT 7:00 PM, as part of former Vice President Al Gore’s grassroots campaign to stop global warming.
“Paulina Essunger is an outstanding example of the millions of people around the world who have been energized by the call to action on the climate crisis,” said Gore.
Essunger is a freelance science editor who recently completed Gore’s rigorous training program at The Climate Project in Tennessee, focusing on the greenhouse effect and the environment. She’ll spend the next year making presentations around Southern Vermont and in her native Sweden.
“People will learn how to reduce their own carbon footprint and how they can personally be part of a larger political movement,” explained Essunger. “Everyone can make a difference!”
The slides Essunger uses feature the scientific data that became the basis of Gore’s book and film An Inconvenient Truth.
“"Al Gore's film has had a profound impact on the public and political debates in the US about climate change,” said Ralph Meima, Marlboro College’s program director for the MBA in Managing for Sustainability. “This debate is urgent because the US is emitting over 30 percent of humanity’s greenhouse gases and has only 4 percent of the world’s population.”
Essunger’s presentation will be at Marlboro College’s undergraduate campus in Ragle Hall at the Serkin Center for the Performing Arts. It is sponsored in part by Marlboro College’s MBA in Managing for Sustainability. The program is accepting applications for enrollment in fall 2007.
