Event Recap! Global Warming – Facts and Solutions with John Zavalney

Hello Burbank....

We had our first Burbank READS lecture program, Global Warming – Facts and Solutions with John Zavalney, last night and 33 people attended. It was such a wonderful presentation, we wished everyone had come by to see it. One member of the audience, Burbank's Recycling guru, Kreigh Hampel, was there and was very impressed. [if you attend our March 21 program you can "talk trash" with Kreigh Hamplel, so stay tuned for details!] Mr. Zavalney was a lively speaker and the slides were very impressive. Even the few youngsters who came with parents were attentive. He not only spoke about global warming, but talked about other green issues such as water conservation and alternative energy sources. His table of exhibits was fascinating. You will find some of Mr. Zevalney's handouts at our Sustainability Showcase finale [another plug!, so stayed tuned for more details].

Mr. Zavalney has worked closely with Jane Goodall and her “Roots & Shoots” campaign with youngsters (check out this website:].
