Professional photographer Jeff Pearcy will present a first-hand account of Typhoon Haiyan’s (aka Yolanda) devastation in the Philippines at the Climate Change Coalition of Door County’s monthly program on Wednesday, June 3. While a single weather event cannot be tied directly to climate change, scientists agree that as the planet warms, super-storms will occur more frequently. Pearcy’s talk begins at 7 at the Fellowship.
A member of First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee, Jeff Pearcy, was engaged by the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) to photograph the recovery and continuing need after Typhoon Yolanda devastated the Philippines on November 8, 2013. He visited a dozen sites on six islands over a two and a half week period. Jeff’s work has been used by UUSC to increase fund raising for the efforts in the Philippines. On the Island of Leyte over six thousand people were killed in less than twelve hours. This is an opportunity to view Jeff’s photographs and hear his first-hand account of the work many of us support through our contributions to UUSC.
