Loudoun Co. | Climate Action in the Commonwealth
Sierra Club Virginia Chapter – Climate Action in the Commonwealth: An Introduction to Virginia's Carbon Rule Location: Ashburn Library, Storytime Room Join Virginia Conservation Network — together with Sierra Club Virginia Chapter, Chesapeake Climate Action Network, and Virginia League of Conservation Voters — for an engaging and educational evening focused on how we can work together to guarentee climate action in Virginia. Attendees will learn more about Governor McAuliffe's Executive Directive 11 (see below for more information on what this is), how these regulations will affect Virginia, and how we can help make this a success together. Background on Executive Directive 11: In May 2017, Governor McAuliffe issued Executive Directive 11 — also known as the Clean Energy Virginia initiative — which directed the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) to draft proposed regulations to reduce carbon pollution from stationary sources. By setting this limit, Governor McAuliffe made Virginia the first southern state to directly address climate change. Over the course of 2017, DEQ has been drafting the proposed regulations and will present them to the State Air Pollution Control Board for review and approval. This vote will happen in mid-November. Executive Directive 11 was the result of the growing momentum of public outcry for government action on climate. This is one of the many important steps needed to tackle climate change and protect our most vulnerable communities from its devastating effects. Governor McAuliffe's announcement started an important process to enact a carbon reduction standard for Virginia. Though Executive Directive 11 is moving forward, our work is not done yet. It is critical that Virginians understand and engage in this regulatory process. These community meetings provide Virginians with the opportunity to learn how to do exactly that.

SciCafe: Aircrew in Extreme Environments
National Museum of Health and Medicine – Medical Museum Science Cafe Aircrew in Extreme Environments: Aerospace and Operational Physiology in the United States Air Force Military aviation has always "pushed the envelope" of performance and operational capability. The human body is often the limiting factor in how high, how far, how fast, or how long aircraft operations can go. Aerospace medicine professionals dedicate their careers to finding ways to improve human performance for military aviators, bridging the gap between the safety of the crew and the extremes of today's mission demands. U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Troy Faaborg is an Aerospace and Operational Physiologist who will present his role in optimizing human performance for USAF aircrew and the Airmen who support their missions.
