Brenau Partners with North Georgia Leaders to Present Town Hall Meeting Discussing Climate Change

Brenau will partner with the University of North Georgia and the Citizens’ Climate Lobby to present Climate Change: A Common Sense Approach and Free Market Solution at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, April 12, in Brenau’s Hosch Theatre, 429 Academy St.

The event is a public, town hall-style event that organizers hope will be enlightening for citizens of all ages, backgrounds and political designations. Speakers include Dr. Mark Farmer, professor of biology at the University of Georgia; Rev. Dr. Bill Coates, pastor of Gainesville First Baptist Church; Rev. John Cromartie, retired pastor of Cumming United Methodist Church; and Dr. Vernon Dixon, retired psychiatrist and member of Citizens Climate Lobby.

Each speaker will present a different aspect or view of climate change, with Farmer presenting recent data on the implications of changing climate, Coates and Cromartie discussing the moral and conservative aspects of climate change, and Dixon outlining a plan to encourage a decrease in greenhouse gas emissions.

The public is invited to attend what is sure to be a productive evening of education and cultural enrichment.
