Saint Mark’s Climate Conversation (Virtual) – How to Stay Cool, Sustainably

July 11 | 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Saint Mark’s Climate Conversation
Heat! How to Stay Cool, Sustainably, and How to Prepare for Hotter Summers
7:00 pm on Thursday, July 11, 2024

While the temperatures in June of 2021 still rank as the hottest days in Seattle, summers before and after have been hotter too. When we want to stay cool, using air conditioners or buying new clothes and gadgets can exacerbate climate change. Join us to learn about trends in temperatures in Seattle summers, what we can do to reduce the impact of higher temperatures on our bodies and homes, and how to stay cool in eco-friendly ways. We’ll also discuss research on innovative solutions such as topping buildings with white roofs, adding green spaces or water to urban areas, and developing materials that make buildings and clothes better able to reflect thermal radiation that can keep us cool without compounding climate change.
