The note below is from Fayetteville activist/educator Louise Mann. Looks like an interesting read.
Beginning Sunday, September 18 at 2:00 the Fayetteville Public Library will be hosting a Climate Change Book Series. The books will vary in content from those with a science background to ones with a layperson's perspective. McKibben's book, the September read, is a good orientation for those new to the topic.
The November book is written by a mother discussing how to run a household on this new Eaarth. What happens to grocery prices when food crops are subject to frequent and severe flooding and drought? What happens when insurance payouts can't keep up with claims?
The book discussion will be complemented by information regarding actions you can take now on everything from lifestyle to legislation. As with any crisis there is opportunity. The people who are smart enough to get educated about climate change and make appropriate plans for their families, their businesses, and their communities will be the winners on this new Eaarth.
