We gathered on the beach in Ventura harbor to see a 17ft tall "yardstick" showing how high sea level could rise by 2100, if nothing is done about carbon emissions.
US Congresswoman LOIS CAPPS sent a representative to read a rousing statement supporting the 1SKY PRIORITIES.
Ventura County Supervisor STEVE BENNETT gave his perspectives on global warming.
Ventura City Council Member BILL FULTON Spoke about Ventura's strides toward lowering the city's carbon footprint. Klabunde reported on various predictions of possible sea level rise.
Local experts explained how global warming works, what effect it has on bird populations and what we individuals can do to mitigate it. And a 13-year-old climate activist explained his work in the City of Ventura.
The crowd went home with new friends, new allies and new ways to contribute to the solution.

Many thanks to all who participated!!
