The scope of the upcoming discussion is expanded for those of you who might want to attend but are unable to finish the selected book by the end of this month. Basically, I encourage all to attend if you have any thoughts on Global Warming otherwise known as Climate Change. If time is an issue, I suggest checking out the book from the library and reading the chapters, Five Degrees, Six Degrees and Choosing Our Future; or check out any of the suggestions below.

Here (http://www.sustainablewoodstock.co.uk/onetwo%20degrees%20summary.pdf) is a six page summary of the book in PDF.

Here (http://ipcc-wg2.gov/AR5/images/uploads/WG2AR5_SPM_FINAL.pdf) is a 36 page PDF summary for Policymakers from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change 2014 Impacts, Adaption and Vulnerability study, which addresses many topics from the book.

FutureTimeline.Net (http://futuretimeline.net/21stcentury/2060-2069.htm#.U8M37_ldVjI) provides a speculative future where the book is referenced multiple times for the decade of 2060 to 2069.

Also, I definitely encourage you to attend if you think warming is completely exaggerated.

Based on authoritative scientific articles, the latest computer models, and information about past warm events in Earth history, Six Degrees promises to be an eye-opening warning that humanity will ignore at its peril.

Nonfiction! This could be the scariest book you will ever read.
