7th Annual Climate Change Forum on March 24

The sky isn’t falling, but the sea is rising — possibly 6 feet or more by 2100. What the latest science tells us about this and what needs to be done to protect ourselves is the topic of the seventh annual Climate Change Forum. Sponsored by the League of Women Voters Pasadena Area, the forum is free and open to the public. It will be held Saturday, March 24, from 9:30 a.m.-noon at First United Methodist Church, 500 E. Colorado Blvd. Free parking off Green Street is available behind the church.
Two distinguished JPL scientists — Annmarie Eldering and Ian Fenty — will present recent findings on global warming science and discuss climate-change policy implications. Eldering is deputy project scientist for the Orbiting Carbon Observatory 2 (OCO-2) Earth satellite. Fenty, a climate scientist, studies polar-ice melting and sea-level rise.

LCUSD Board Candidates Forum on Oct. 2

The five candidates running for the La Cañada Unified School District Governing Board election are expected to participate in a public forum at the La Cañada High School auditorium at 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 2.
The forum is being hosted by the La Cañada Council PTA and the League of Women Voters-Pasadena Area.
The public is invited to attend the event, at which audience members will hear prepared statements from the candidates and have the opportunity to submit written questions.
The League of Women Voters is dedicated to making democracy work by offering services to communities with the purpose of informing and encouraging voters to take advantage of their right to vote.
As a non-partisan organization, the La Cañada Council PTA neither supports nor opposes candidates. It does, however, aim to help disseminate as much factual, objective information as possible during election campaigns so voters can make informed choices on issues that affect the community’s children.
