This is the Meetup Group for the Singleaires activity section of the Loma Prieta Chapter of the Sierra Club.
We have hikes every Sunday followed by social events hosted at members' homes. Our hikes are open to the public. Social events are for members of Sierra Singleaires, or for guests of members who go on that day's hike and who are acceptable to the host as a guest. (As social events are held in private homes all attendance is at the discretion of the host.)
We list only our hikes and a few featured events on this Meetup site for the public to attend. We also have other activities for paid up members of the Sierra Singleaires.
The primary listing of all of our hikes and events is the Sierra Singleaires Schedule. It is mailed every three months to all paid up Sierra Singleaires Activities Group members as well as being e-mailed to them. If you are not a member of the Sierra Singleaires you are missing out on members-only social events, campouts, backpacking, mule packs in the Sierra Nevada, parties, group e-mail, and other special events.
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.
