CLIMATE CHANGE READING GROUP

THE CLIMATE CHANGE READING GROUP resembles a 'book club', but with a particular focus: to understand the science, politics and economics of climate change. We hope to educate ourselves and to gain clarity into this urgent environmental issue, to consider how best to live personally in relation to the impending crisis, and to raise public awareness of the need for systemic change. For the first year we met monthly to discuss together a book we had all read, mainly on the science of climate change. Building on that background, we now meet four times a year, focusing mainly on books or published articles on the political and economic dimensions of climate change. Everyone is welcome, regardless of religious or political affiliation, if any.

Meetings are held, usually in the Campbell Room, near the door of the west parking lot of East Plains Church, on pre-planned and pre-announced Saturday evenings, with refreshments and casual conversation from 7:00 p.m., and structured but free-wheeling discussion from 7:30 until 9:00 p.m.
