CLIMATE DESTABILIZATION: OUR LONG SLOW EMERGENCY
RACHEL CARSON: Author of best-selling book, SILENT SPRING
We are not just experiencing a climate emergency marked by increasingly extreme and expensive weather events;
we are in the beginnings of a necessary civilization re-boot.
Our perspective is that the core ecological problem is not climate change,
but rather it is overshoot, of which our climate destabilization is a symptom.
We have overshot the ability, i.e.,“carrying capacity”, of the earth to
support the population by using up resources faster than they can be replenished.
In the process we’ve put an amount of CO2 into the atmosphere
that has destabilized our climate.
“There can be no greater crime against humanity
than the destruction of conditions that make human life possible…”
We are in an unprecedented time of risk, uncertainty, and opportunity … and with some urgency we are called
to greater participation to serve our Emerging Future.
Join us for this important discussion of how we move forward to create
an Earth Community of justice, sustainability and peace!
