UCSB Reads Community Conversations

Posted by UCSB Libraries on March 27, 2007

You are invited to attend our next “UCSB Reads”community conversation.
There will be a brief presentation, a discussion of the scientific basis for
understanding global warming, and an open forum for questions and
conversation. Please join us!

What we’re reading:
Field Notes from a Catastrophe: Man, Nature, and Climate Change
By Elizabeth Kolbert

Thursday April 12, Noon
Mary Cheadle Room, 3rd floor, Davidson Library

With Professor Josh Schimel, ES Program Chair,
Professor Bruce Tiffney, Dean of CCS, and
Katie Maynard, Sustainability Coordinator

The nature of global warming and its impacts present fascinating questions and
discussion issues, and Kolbert discusses them from a very knowledgeable
background. She challenges us to carefully consider our impact and our role in
creating change. Topics for discussion include the issues raised in the book,
the science and politics behind them, and questions about how to proceed in the
future. What can we do collectively and individually to make a change? Join in
the conversation, bringing your own perspectives to the discussion.
