ECOLOGY CENTER EVENTS

Thursday, February 16, 2006
Bay Area Relocalize: Preparing for the End of Cheap Oil — In response to the growing concerns around climate change and the end of cheap oil, Post Carbon Institute has launched an exciting new project called Bay Area Relocalize. The project is assessing our region's use of resources and developing a model for local communities to bring the production of our food, energy and essential goods closer to home. We are connecting with neighborhoods, businesses, and community groups to mobilize around reducing our consumption of resources from outside the region and replacing them with local resources. Examples include creating community gardens, installing solar panels on homes and businesses, capturing rainwater, improving public transit, and building affordable homes nearer to where we work. This 2-hour event hosted at the Ecology Center will feature a panel of presenters from the project and Q&A. Proceeds will benefit the Bay Area Relocalize project. Location: Ecology Center, 2530 San Pablo Ave, near Dwight Way, Berkeley. Time: 7pm - 9pm. Cost: Requested donation of $5-20 (sliding scale). No one turned away for lack of funds.. Info: 510-548-2220 x233.

Wednesday, February 22, 2006

Thursday, February 23, 2006
Book Event: "Arctic Melting: ... Destroying One of the World's Largest Wilderness Areas" — Chad Kister will return to the Ecology Center to discuss his second book Arctic Melting: How Climate Change is Destroying One of the World's Largest Wilderness Areas. With Bush pushing for yet more subsidies to the doomed fossil fuel industry that is the cause of climate change, Kister's new book details not only the horrific problems, but also the solutions to this massive crisis. He discusses permafrost cave-ins, melting glaciers, retreating ice packs, species extinction, habitat loss, and the devastating effects of climate change on Native American villages in the Arctic. Kister asks why Bush's energy policy gives billions of dollars to coal, oil, and natural gas companies, while reducing subsidies to solar and wind energy production. Why is the average fuel efficiency of vehicles in the US getting worse while in every other country it is getting far better? Kister argues that through solar, wind and biomass energy sources, and efficiency in every sector of energy use, we can easily meet all of our needs without changing our lifestyle. Join us to discuss what we can do to protect our Earth for our children and grandchildren. Location: Ecology Center, 2530 San Pablo Ave, near Dwight Way, Berkeley. Time: 7pm - 9pm. Cost: Free.
