Enjoy a variety of hikes/events offered by the Sierra Club's Loma Prieta Sierra Singles section (LPSS), the Black Mountain Hiking Section (BMHS) and the Guadalupe Group which are based in the midpeninsula region. Most leaders have many years of experience leading hikes and often have a great knowledge of many open space areas and parks in the Bay area. LPSS hikes/events will be "singles events" and BMG and Guadalupe group events are "open to everyone". Most hikes will have organized carpool points. We also have fun off the trail with social events such as dinners, concerts, picnics, a Halloween Party, a Super Bowl Party and an Academy Awards party.
This month’s zoom presentation is by Associate Professor Emeritus Jerry Kroth of the Graduate Program at Santa Clara University. He will present on climate change – Climate Emergency: Why Radical Interventions are needed now to stop climate apocalypse.
Prof. Jerry Kroth presents a concise review of climate change science which paints an almost apocalyptic picture of where the planet is heading. Both conventional and radical solutions are proposed to prevent 1.5 degrees of warming. If humanity fails—and we have less than 10 years to drawdown emissions by 50 percent—we will rapidly be on our way to two degrees and breaching three horrific tipping points of no return. The remedies are drastic. The solutions are not easy. Still it is all within the realm of possibility.
There is hope, but that hope dangles by a gossamer thread that depends on global commitment and action today.
