Registration: Sign up for one of the above options to get access codes to the online event, plus discount codes (!) for locally brewed beer. Paid options help us cover some of the costs of organizing these Climate Science on Tap events. Questions for the panelists can be submitted prior to the start of the event using this CSonTap Question form.
- Can we be savvy consumers of climate information?
- How do we have more productive conversations about climate change?
- And what about getting that curmudgeonly relative to accept the science?
Join our panel for a Climate Science on Tap - Online as we discuss best practices for assessing information about climate change and tips for talking about it with others. Listen to riveting presentations! Engage in an online Q & A and learn how you can be a better communicator - this CSoT is certain to get folks talking!

P.S. As you well know, this is a tenuous time for small nonprofits and for the climate movement. Anything you can pitch in will go a long way to support Cascadia Climate Action's climate outreach programs. We have a $5 and $10 options for tickets, as well as a free ticket or this link to donate any amount. Thanks for what you can add, but the bottom line is to get informed, get involved and take some climate action!
