Green Friday ‘Stabilizing the Climate System — what would be fair enough to actually work?’

September 8, 2017 @ 7:00 pm

- $3

This Green Friday presentation will be given by Tom Athanasiou whose topic is entitled “Stabilizing the Climate System — what would be fair enough to actually work?”  Tom Athanasiou is a climate-equity specialist.  In 1996 he wrote Divided Planet:  the Ecology of Rich and Poor. Since then he has focused on the equity debate within the international climate talks.  He co-directs the Climate Equity Reference Project and is writing a new book entitled Justice within Limits.   In Tom’s own words:  “Climate justice is the future of the green movement.  We all know this now or should.  But what do these two lovely words actually mean?  In this discussion we’ll consider an answer that begins with the baseline reality:  climate crisis is one side of a coin that has inequality crisis on its other.”Green Friday meets on the second Friday of the month.  Refreshments are served. Our programs present speakers and topics discussing the most important environmental issues of our time.  All are welcome Sierra Club members as well as nonmembers.
