Join us for informative sessions of TED Talks & Book Discussions encouraging awareness & conversation about our global warming crisis.

January 11 – TED Talk: The most important thing you can do to fight climate change: Talk (2018, Katharine Hayhoe)

Not by rehashing the same data and facts we’ve been discussing for years, says climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe. In this inspiring, pragmatic talk, Hayhoe shows how the key to having a real discussion is to connect over shared values like family, community and religion — and to prompt people to realize that they already care about a changing climate. “We can’t give in to despair,” she says. “We have to go out and look for the hope we need to inspire us to act — and that hope begins with a conversation, today.”
