“TIME IS RUNNING OUT ON CLIMATE CHANGE:
What do we need to do &
how will we accomplish this?”
Monday, January 5th from 7 – 8:30p.m.
Friends Meetinghouse (1704 Roberts Court)
PARTICIPATE IN A 350 DISCUSSION OF CONTRASTING OPTIONS
Peter Anderson: Go for broke for big gains
Don Ferber: Tempered activist strategy—a multitude of smaller steps
The questions our leaders will address: Without decisive climate action, time will run out on society’s capacity to avoid the worst impacts of global warming. What lessons have we learned from events such as the People’s Climate March as to how to achieve that? What should be our next strategic focus? Should we focus primarily on major dramatic actions such as more mass marches, disrupting tar sands pipelines, civil disobedience against fossil fuels, attempt to force rapid system change, etc.? Or is an option to pursue reasonable paths to effect changes that may be smaller in magnitude, but might provide a synergistic effect? What options and paths do you see?
After Peter and Don provide their perspectives on the above questions, there will be a moderated audience discussion.
