Our April Book club selection is inspired by Earth Day and the many events observing this 30 year tradition of drawing awareness to environmental issues. Join us for a discussion of Drawdown, an accessible, readable book that ranks solutions to climate change.
Our book club facilitator, Nia Black Belt Krista Hiser, is also a professor in the University of Hawaii system, where she works with faculty to integrate sustainability across the curriculum. Krista says that Drawdown is the most important book on climate change ever written.
To prepare for bookclub, you can watch this video with Paul Hawken.
Renée Tillotson has found the book to be very readable, with helpful pictures and practical applications.
REVIEW OF DRAWDOWN
“…There’s been no real way for ordinary people to get an understanding of what they can do and what impact it can have. There remains no single, comprehensive, reliable compendium of carbon-reduction solutions across sectors. At least until now. ..the public is hungry for this kind of practical wisdom.” — David Roberts, Vox
On Saturday, April 21, you might also be interested in joining us for the Blue Line Project
An exercise to visualize sea level rise over the next 40 years and how it will impact our community. Participants will draw, in chalk, the sea level rise projection from the UH School of Ocean and Earth Science & Technology (SOEST). We’ve seen king tides and flooding right on Queen Street. What does sea level rise mean for our neighborhood?
