Presenter: Dr. Adelia Ritchie

With rising seas, global heat records falling, and storms becoming more devastating, the reality of climate change has never been clearer. With clean energy solutions like wind and solar getting more affordable, batteries getting better, and buildings becoming more energy efficient every year, we can see the way forward. Thanks to 195 countries signing the Paris Agreement to cut greenhouse gas emissions planetwide, the world is united in working for a safe and sustainable future. Climate Reality is working to accelerate the global shift from activities driving climate change to renewables so we can power our lives and economies without destroying our planet.

Speaker Dr. Adelia Ritchie received a bachelor’s degree in chemistry and physics from the University of West Florida, and her master’s degree and doctorate in physical organic chemistry from Northwestern University. In June 2017, Ritchie completed the Climate Reality Leadership training program under former Vice President and current Chairman of the Climate Reality Project Al Gore. She now works with educators, communicators, organizers and strategists.
