Join presenter Ed George as he explores Andreas Karelas’ new book Climate Courage. The book tells stories of individuals and groups who refuse to be discouraged by all the ominous climate change news, and who have gotten busy and taken action. Brave office holders support planet-friendly laws. Community activists raise up support for solar workforce job training. A network of churches commits to switch to 100% wind power. Climate Courage is a mosaic of these and other heartening tales. There is much that’s already going on in the world. You will see ideas for action; maybe they will spark ideas of your own.

Edward V. George is retired from teaching and research in classical languages at Texas Tech University. He has been a Citizens’ Climate Lobby volunteer for four years. He and his wife Cecilia tend a xeriscaped yard and harvest rainwater with a 1,000-gallon tank. They belong to Covenant Presbyterian Church, Lubbock, a PCUSA certified Earth Care Congregation.

EVENT FORMAT:
Our presenter will speak for 15 to 20 minutes, then we’ll have an informal Q&A session and discussion for the remainder of the event. This event is held online on Zoom.
