So you’re going to Climate Week NYC? First off, you are magnificent: This is the climate event of the year. And it’s bound to be a wild(ly educational) time.

Second, get ready to be blissfully overwhelmed with literally hundreds of awesome climate-focused events. But it’s going to be hellish to have to decide between some of those gems, so we’ve narrowed down the key (in our humble opinion) events — including an appearance by Chip Giller, Grist’s founder, and Bill McKibben, Grist board member (and founder of 350.org). You’re gonna want to pencil these in.

Also, shameless plug: Grist is sponsoring The New School’s Climate Action Week events, which get their own calendar of events over here.
