The Energy corporations and their politicians have hijacked the climate solutions debate, while major environmental organizations legitimize the whole show. They focus on alternative technologies — “Green energy (bio-fuels),” “clean coal,” ”safe” nuclear power, even wind and solar development — and which portion of their portfolio will receive the latest and greatest public subsidies.
We need to promote a program now to (1) raise conservation as the key and immediate demand (2) raise the environmental consequences of the US wars of aggression (3) forget about arguing with the Neanderthals about climate realities, but focus on enacting real climate solutions; and (4) work to unite rather than counterpose the jobs vs. environment conundrum.

Conservation biologist and member of the State Central Committee of the Peace and Freedom Party Roger Harris will make a PowerPoint presentation on the basic science involved in climate change and raise some political questions on how to respond to the challenge. Please join us for a robust discussion.
