I will be speaking about the the climate crisis and the effects on Colorado at two events soon:

Wednesday, March 29, 2017, 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM
Smiley Branch Library
4501 W 46th Ave
Denver, CO 80212
(The meeting is in the basement)

Monday, April 3, 2017, , 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM
Thornton Community Park
2211 Eppinger Blvd.
Thornton, CO 80229
(Community Building next to the swimming pool)

Please be sure to bring your children along. Mitigating the effects of the climate crisis is really for them. It is an existential threat for many species along with being the social justice movement of our time.

I will address three questions:

  • Should we act to mitigate climate change?
  • Can we and how can we mitigate climate change?
  • Will we act to mitigate climate change and what can we do?
  • The program is presented in conjunction with the Climate Reality Project.

    As a kid I spent a lot of my time at Smiley Library, so it’s very appropriate that I kick off my current climate actions there.

    One of the librarians, Miss Ayres, always made me feel welcome. She seemed glad to see me and she actively helped direct my reading.

    I ran into her when I was managing the Hatch’s Book Store in the old Cinderella City shopping center. I was stationed at the cash register and she was making a purchase. We recognized each other and she said as she left, “And you’re still in books!”

    That was a big day for me.
