Posted 12 Jun 2018: Suing Over Climate Change

Tuesday, June 26, 7pm. RAISING HOPES AND OPTIMISTIC EXPECTATIONS REGARDING THE CLIMATE CRISIS ❖ AN INVITATION ❖
It’s likely we have something very important in common, you and I, one or more of the following:
• we both believe the Climate Crisis is an existential threat to humanity and other life on earth
• we both are parents concerned with how the Climate Crisis will affect our children’s future
• we both are grandparents concerned with how the Climate Crisis will affect our grandchildren’s future
• we both believe practicing green-conscious consumerism is important but not enough to fix the Climate Crisis
• we both believe we can neither wait for nor trust the politicians to fix the Climate Crisis
• we both believe we can no longer keep on with our day to day business as usual

If one or more of these is true, I’d like to invite you to please make plans to come to my talk — Raising Hopes and Optimistic Expectations Regarding the Climate Crisis — on June 26, 7:00 pm, at the Vista Grande Public Library, 14 Avenida Torreon in Eldorado / Santa Fe.

I’m Nelson Bonner. I’m a grandparent and I’m profoundly concerned about the Climate Crisis. I believe there are millions and millions of people — very likely you among them — who are also concerned and who don’t need or want their consciousnesses raised yet further about the reality and details of Global Warming but who are desperate for the kind of good news that would realistically enable them to have their hopes and optimistic expectations truly raised.

To this end, I’m founding a membership-based nonprofit — the Grandchildren’s Fund for a Fossil Fuel Free Future — to combat the Climate Crisis with an approach that is at the same time unprecedented, effective, (admittedly) controversial, and designed to match the actual scale of the problem. By this I mean that since the Climate Crisis problem is, literally, as big as the Earth, the only way it can be resolved is to find a solution of the same scale.

Please join me for a discussion of how the Grandchildren’s Fund for a Fossil Fuel Free Future offers such a solution and be open to having your hopes and optimistic expectations raised.
❖ Nelson
