In support of #NoDAPL

screen-shot-2016-09-09-at-10-06-46-pmFor months, the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in North Dakota has been peacefully resisting a proposed oil pipeline, known as the Dakota Access Pipeline, that would run near their reservation, arguing that it could endanger both their drinking water supplies (and that of millions downstream) and recently discovered sacred sites, not to mention the effect of burning oil on climate change

The struggle over the Dakota Access Pipeline encompasses everything from the federal government’s historically appalling treatment of Native Americans to broader debates over fracking and climate change. This cause has attracted the largest gathering of Native Americans for 100 years in support of the Standing Rock Sioux.

On Tuesday September 13 from 4 – 6 pm, Please join a demonstration in support of #NoDAPL at Marin and San Pablo Avenues in Albany. Bring art and banners – some good messages could be: People Over Pipelines, #NoDAPL, In Solidarity with Standing Rock, Obama: Stop the Dakota Access Pipeline! (more…)

Responding to Abrupt Climate Change, with Guy McPherson

May 7 @ 1:30 pm - Event Details

Guy McPhersonGuy McPherson, of Nature Bats Last, is a rare phenomenon: a man who is willing to share the facts about the likely imminent effects of climate change on our species – yup: the fate of the human race in the Sixth Great Extinction. He presents the facts with a good dose of “gallows humor.”

He will be making a presentation, “Responding to Abrupt Climate Change” at the West Berkeley Library on Saturday, May 7th at 1:30 pm. Please join Guy and other humans who are willing to hear the stark truths of our predicament, and discover what beauty can arise in life when things are clear. Bring your friends and loved ones.

The free afternoon talk will be followed by a fundraiser and book-signing at the nearby Highwire Coffee Roasters (see image below for addresses). Guy is making his West Coast tour on the gift economy and we welcome your financial contributions. (more…)
