SDRVC Climate Change, San Diego, and You
September 14, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
What are the likely effects of global climate change (GCC) around the world, across the United States, and within the San Diego region? Is where you live in any danger? Is there evidence that GCC is already affecting the San Diego region? What steps should we be taking?
Professor Emeritus Phil Pryde first started teaching about greenhouse gas effects at SDSU in the 1980’s and has followed the topic ever since. This will be an illustrated, objective look at what we know and don’t know about global climate change and its possible effects locally.
Philip R. Pryde, Ph.D., is Professor Emeritus at SDSU where he taught for 32 years. His research specializations included water resources, energy resources, and the environmental effects of economic development. He started teaching about greenhouse gases in the 1980’s and has followed the topic ever since. He developed a slide show about climate change in 2006 and recently digitized this presentation. Phil has traveled to numerous locations relevant to climate change (arctic regions, low-lying oceanic islands, etc.). He has chaired the San Diego County Planning Commission, and served on the board of the San Diego County Water Authority.

SDRVC and the Friends of Balboa Park have a lot in common.
We both have a mission to save animals! In the case of the Friends of Balboa Park, it is the beautiful, historic menagerie carousel at Balboa Park.
Join us at the Del Mar Town Hall for a presentation on the captivating history and exciting future of this San Diego treasure!
Here are some fun facts:
All the animals on our carousel are original, as are the hand-painted murals, the band organ and the brass ring game. All the animals are decorated with fanciful designs. Only our pair of frogs wears clothes. They are wearing tuxedos (one red, one yellow), starched white shirt fronts and bow ties.
There are only 12 known remaining operating brass ring games on carousels in North America, where once there were thousands.
The origins of carousels date back at least 900 years. They are descended from war games devised by Turkish and Arabian horsemen in the 12th century. These games were carried to France by Crusaders in the 13th century and then to England and on to North America in the late 1800s.
