Guy 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…)

We’re showing Homestretch, and collecting new pairs of socks and cereal for young adults currently experiencing homelessness and served by YEAH (Youth Engagement, Advocacy and Housing) in Berkeley.
Please come. Tickets are $20 and there will also be gift cards on sale to benefit YEAH. (No-one will be turned away for lack of funds.)
Co sponsors include East Bay Housing Organizations, Albany Community Foundation, Solano Avenue Association & Stroll, many local churches, and Transition Albany. The Diverse Housing Working Group initiated this event.
If you can come early to help set up and/or help during the event, please contact Allen Cain / Solano Avenue Association 510-527-5358 firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
Please take this opportunity to make a difference in the lives of young people who are housing-challenged.
