It is time to stop quivering in our boots in pointless fear of the future and just roll up our sleeves and build it.

Two Campus Events This Week

Compare and contrast:

  1. Climate action workshop sponsored by United Student Activists
    United Student Activists will be presenting a workshop conducted by Rising Tide to connect the overarching crisis of climate change and the grassroots struggles of communities resisting the fossil fuel industry's assault on their land and culture.
    Time: Mar 26, 7-9 p.m.
    Location: Mezes Hall 1.120

  2. Experts discuss climate change and its predicted effects on the world
    Sponsored by Engineers for a Sustainable World, climate experts from Hewlett-Packard Company and the World Wildlife Fund will provide an overview of climate change and its predicted effects on various regions of the country as well as the world, and their responses to the challenges that climate change presents.
    Time: Mar. 27, 6-8 p.m.
    Location: Jackson Geological Science Building, Room 2.216
Both of these events don't appeal to me at all. (Follow the links.) Surely there is some potential for some sort of a middle ground between these unfortunate misfires.
