California’s Climate Team will hold a live video conference from the UN Summit in Copenhagen to respond directly to questions from San Diegans.
The forum will be screened live this Thursday at the University of San Diego.
California's Secretaries of the Environment, Agriculture and Natural Resources, as well as the Chair of the Air Resources Board, will talk about their experience of the conference and what it might mean for Californians.
Carl Nettleton of Open Oceans Global, who is in Copenhagen will be the moderator.
"Our focus is to say, 'how is what’s happening here going to impact San Diegans?'" Nettleton said, "Is it going to mean there will be more impacts on our lifestyle, will there be more opportunities for developing new solutions to address climate change? Those are the sorts of things that will come out of this discussion."
The panel will cover issues such as emmisions targets and cap and trade policies.
The forum may be the only live, interactive video feed from Copenhagen to a California audience.
The Teleconference will be from 7 a.m. to 9:15 Thursday morning at the Joan Kroc Center at USD.
