The world is a complicated place with so many major issues. Some people, including Paul Reale, believe that addressing climate change should be at the top of our to do list. Really? More important than EVERYTHING else? Come hear Paul put Climate Change into perspective, developed in part with his extensive experience with Al Gore's Climate Realty Project. Stay for Q & A, and then enjoy tasty beverages and the HUDSON VALLEY SEED LIBRARY exhibition.

As an environmental consultant, Paul Reale has worked with Natural Resource Defense Council and Urban Green Council promoting lease language that removes a barrier to energy efficiency projects in commercial buildings. He has also consulted on projects involving aquaculture (fish farming) and energy economizers for outdoor electronics. Paul teaches executives, professionals, building operators and others on numerous environmental topics, including the NY State energy conservation construction code, green building operations and maintenance, and NY City's Green Greater Buildings Plan. Paul is founder and CEO of Green Allowance, a home energy conservation startup, and he co-founded the Carbon Squeeze – a community-wide environmental initiative focused on reducing carbon emissions. As a volunteer for Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project, Paul has presented to over 7,500 people the science and facts about climate change. He has a Masters of Engineering and is a LEEP AP. RSVP to Michele Israel no later than March 4th. We need a head count. Thanks.
