Creating Resilient Communities to Weather the Climate and Energy Future
On Friday, November 30th at 7 PM, Guy McPherson, conservation biologist and author of the blog Nature Bats Last, will be discussing how we can create more resilient communities to better prepare for our climate and energy future. Guy describes how individuals, communities and society can work to strengthen their own resilience and prepare for the world of change brought on by the challenges of climate change, energy descent and economic contraction. After 20 years as a professor at the University of Arizona, Dr. Guy McPherson made a "decision of conscience" to leave and pursue more direct, efficacious responses to the changes he sees coming in our world. Guy presents the case clearly, in a gentle, humorous, but matter-of-fact and inescapable sort of way.
