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.
The previous weekend, on May 1 at 1pm, Guy will be opening for the Utopia Now Commons Fest at Humanist Hall, 390 27th Street, Oakland.
