FORGING A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE

NORTH CAROLINA MUSEUM OF NATURAL SCIENCES, RALEIGH | THURSDAY, JAN. 14

Late last year, WRAL-TV's chief meteorologist, Greg Fishel, caused quite the stir with an essay called "Choose science, stewardship in understanding climate change." Fishel scolded politicians for drawing party lines around a global crisis that should be rooted in scientific reason, not vote-getting, and called for a reckoning of the overwhelming data indicating that climate change is real. Fishel joins a town hall, dubbed "Forging a Sustainable Future," with representatives from the United Nations and N.C. State to talk about, yes, climate change but also quests to create more sustainable social structures through scientific advances and education. They'll also discuss local and global initiatives to slow the effects of climate change and ensure there's a world left to love for future generations. A meet-and-greet follows, providing a chance to catch one of Fishel's delightfully geeky puns up close. 7 p.m., free, 11 W. Jones St., Raleigh, 919-707-9800, www.naturalsciences.org. —Allison Hussey
