Mitchell on Climate Change & What To Do

mjr3 tibet houseWednesday, April 19, 6pm: The environmental state of the planet is becoming increasingly dire and those wielding the largest levels of power in the U.S. are in denial of the reality of the situation, articulated by Climatologists around the world.  Science is not simply ‘a belief system’ on the level of others and requires careful review and scrutiny.
This is not a partisan issue, this is not a political issue, it is a matter of life and death.  The call to be calm and level-headed, yesky-earth-galaxy-universet very thoughtful and strategic as a collective, as a species, at this point, beyond ordinary definitions and identity,is imperative.  Looking at the geological changes taking place, the arctic and permafrost melt, methane release, rain forest destruction, will be taking place in this evening’s talk. How do we, can we, make peace with the reality of the utter decimation of our planet by the forces in government and corporate power?  How do we deal with the fact that the current President of the U.S. is embracing policy contrary to clear science, dismantling the EPA, and saber-rattling with the most powerful nuclear powers on the planet?  Can we remain centered in the midst of such irrational, confused behavior of top officials, and with our humanity in tact?  Such is this evening’s subject and challenge.
