5288Provocative talk at Sunday's climate meeting
- Nov 28, 2006A short talk on "Global warming could kill half of life on earth (including people) and what you can do about it." will be given at the Sunday meeting of Houston Climate Protection Alliance December 3rd, 2:30pm.
The 11/22/06 Scientific American article "Impact from the Deep" said global warming, or more precisely high levels of CO2 could explain why over the last 500 million years, half or more of life on earth has been killed several times. http://sciam.com/article.cfm?chanID=sa006&articleID=00037A5D-A938-150E-A93883414B7F0000 Tim Mock will give the audience a choice of either viewing the PBS Nova Science Now summary of the article aired on 11/21 or his summarizing it for us.
To cheer you up after this scary science, Nan Hildreth will summarize our accomplishments in Houston climate protection in the last year and about what we can do next.
The meeting will be at 2:30pm on Sunday 12/3/06 at First Unitarian Universalist Church, 5200 Fannin at the corner of Southmore in the Museum District. Houston Climate Protection Alliance www.HoustonClimateProtection.org is one of several groups in the growing Houston movement for climate protection.
