04 March 2015. Giddings briefly spoke at a STAY COOL event where Dr. Ron Flick was the lead speaker. Dr Flick discussed climate change impacts as they relate to sea level on a global and regional scale, including his recent work in Antarctica. Dr. Giddings described her work on local estuarine response to extreme sea level events including her PhD students’ Angelica and Maddie’s projects. STAY COOL is a non-partisan organization of grandparents working to help protect their grandkids from global warming by staying informed and expanding education. It was inspiring to see such a large group of citizens actively engaged in advocacy and education.
