Virtual: Climate Change: What it Means for New England

Thursday, September 8, 2022

Quentin Prideaux presents the basic science of climate change and its effect on New England. Combining powerful images of the early effects of climate change with concrete data on what is happening right now, this presentation is both moving and enlightening. The talk will cover the impacts and causes of climate change, the actions we need to take, and what it all means for the Northeast.

Quentin Prideaux is a Partner in the management consulting firm Alder Associates, and a Board member of Sustainable Wellesley.

Quentin has a degree in Physics, an MBA, and a Masters in Sustainability from Harvard Extension School. He lives in Wellesley with his wife, Delissa, and two children; Alex (23) and Samantha (18).

Quentin has long been engaged with climate change action and began giving talks in 2012. He continually updates his material to cover the science, the impacts of climate change, the actions we need to take, and what it all means for Massachusetts and the Northeast. 

Some interesting facts about Quentin:

  • He took two bus-loads of marchers from Wellesley to The People’s Climate March in New York on September 21st and met 400,000 other marchers there.
  • He gardens for food and last year produced 110 pounds of organic produce in his back yard
