Climate Change
Everyone's talking about gradual climate change, but what if it were to happen suddenly? Richard Alley, 2014 recipient of the National Academy of Sciences' Arthur L. Day Prize and Lectureship, will speak about that in the Richard B. Alley Lecture, no politics included. His research focuses on the retrieval and study of ice cores from Greenland and Antarctica. "Abrupt Climate Change: Surprises in the Greenhouse?" Weber State University, Shepherd Union Building, 2910 W. Campus Drive, Ogden, Friday, Dec. 11, 12:30 p.m.; "The Good News About Energy, the Environment and Our Future," Union Station Browning Theater, 2501 Wall Ave., Ogden, Dec. 11, 5:30 p.m., reception follows.

Giving to Good Causes
It's cold, and you're hungry and homeless. It's not that hard to imagine. The Cathedral Church of St. Mark will hold a benefit concert to raise funds for Hildegard's Pantry, especially during the holidays when the need is greatest. Daniel Carter's Artaban, the Other Wiseman will be narrated by Howard Jorgensen and sung by Mindy Pack, with Danny Eggers and Shelby Maughn. Suggested donation is $10 per person or nonperishable food items. The story is based on Henry Van Dyke's immortal Christmas tale of love, mercy and sacrifice for the human family. Cathedral Church of St. Mark, 231 E. 100 South, Monday, Dec. 7, 7 p.m.

It's hard to argue Utah's need for education on human rights. To that end, the Salt Lake City Mayor's Office of Diversity & Human Rights is holding a fundraiser, the 2015 Human Rights Day Celebration, to benefit the Human Rights Education Project. HRC will recognize the Planned Parenthood Association of Utah and Dr. Mansoor Emam, founder of two free medical clinics, as the recipients of the 2015 Human Rights Awards. The HRC will also present a posthumous award to Frank Cordova in memory of his service and dedication to Salt Lake City residents. Salt Lake City & County Building, third floor, Thursday, Dec. 10, 6-8:30 p.m., $25 in advance; $30 at door,

Wellbeing & Health
Got asthma? Salt Lake's miserably dirty air can't help. The Salt Lake County Health Department is offering a free education and trigger-reduction program available to county residents with asthma. A new Home-Visitation Program seeks participants with severe or uncontrolled asthma. Those who complete the full program receive a $50 Smith's gift card. Information/enrollment in Salt Lake County, 385-468-3651, Utah County, 801-851-7509
