Des Moines Mayor Frank Cownie began the event by talking about the importance of local efforts to address climate change.
It’s at the local level where we see effects of climate change daily,” Cownie said at the event.
David Courard-Hauri, a professor of environmental science and policy at Drake University, explained two myths associated with climate change: it is not caused by humans and it is too expensive to address.
While it may have been argued in the 1990s that climate change was a natural occurrence, Courard-Hauri said the way the climate has changed since then has shown “this is not natural change we’re seeing.”
Courard-Hauri also discussed a study in New York that showed the state would make money if it went 100 percent to alternative energy.
