SPEAKERS AVAILABLE: There are ongoing talks on climate change issues presented by Tim Mock (free) and others. If you would like to attend or schedule such a talk, contact him at TimCMock(at)Gmail.com
EXAMPLES: Does peace require a healthy climate? -- A conversation about climate change and culture, lessons from the past and projections into the future. Depending on their backgrounds/interests attendees might talk about/watch/listen to ideas from Jared Diamond, Lester Brown, Gwynne Dyer, students of the Royal College of Art, and Wikipedia. [Already presented to a meeting of the Houston Peace Forum.]
Previously the Peace Forum investigated climate science as presented by James Hansen, Director of NASA's Institute of Space Studies. His book, Storms of My Grandchildren: The Truth about the Coming Climate Catastrophe and Our Last Chance to Save Humanity, is a bit much for a two-hour session but highly recommended for those who have time to read it. Fortunately, he covered key points of the book in his acceptance speech for the Blue Planet prize, Japan's equivalent of the Nobel. The talk and images made for an animated conversation.
Those who think they understand the climate problem well enough to spend time evaluating solutions might directly contact Nan Hildreth. She has done extensive studies on storing carbon in soil and has good presentation materials.
Or contact Nancy Edwards to learn more about what individuals can do. She has worked with the City of Houston to present courses based on materials like the Low Carbon Diet book.
