“This seminar could not be more timely, as we are in the midst of an extreme heat wave, and water levels are diminishing at a dangerous rate as a result of climate change," said Bertil Lindblad, president of the United Nations Coachella Valley Chapter. "We are happy to have Tanja Srebotnjak, renowned climate expert, and local meteorologist Patrick Evans share facts and discuss the urgent action needed globally and locally.”
Srebotnjak is currently the director of the Zilkha Center for Environmental Initiatives at Williams College. She completed her Ph.D. in environmental statistics and policy at the Yale School of the Environment in 2007 and has since been working on environmental, sustainability and human health issues in a variety of settings and contexts.
Most recently she was the inaugural director of the Hixon Center for Sustainable Environmental Design at Harvey Mudd College and the Environmental Citizenship program at the Nueva School in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her work at Nueva involved core curriculum design in environmental citizenship and obtaining the school's first-ever recognition as a 2021 Green Ribbon School by the federal Department of Education. At Williams College she is immersed in developing and implementing transformative climate action and sustainability strategies, advancing diversity, equity and inclusion in the sustainability field, and creating meaningful opportunities for students to learn about sustainability and become effective change makers.
Evans, who has a degree in environmental science and studies with the Virginia State Climatology Office, is the morning and noon meteorologist at KESQ News Channel 3, and host of “Eye on the Desert” in Palm Springs. He also hosts an afternoon drive on CV 104.3 FM from 2-7 p.m.
In August 2002, Evans moved to the Palm Springs area to help launch the new Coachella Valley CBS affiliate, where he served as the chief meteorologist for nearly 17 years. Following the merger with KESQ News Channel 3, he can now be seen at 5 and 6 a.m., noon and 12: 45 p.m. hosting "Eye on the Desert." He recently earned an Emmy Award for his work and is recipient No. 366 on the Palm Springs Walk of Stars.
A longtime devotee of Frank Sinatra, Evans can often be spotted crooning with local musicians. Each afternoon at 4 p.m., Evans features "Frank at 4" on CV 104.3, a daily dose of the Chairman of the Board along with a little history about the man and his music.
Jeff Hocker, United Nations Association Coachella Valley communications chair, executive producer of Hocker Productions and a talk show host on IHUB Radio, will moderate this panel discussion.
