ROUND TABLE DISCUSSION RELATING TO CRISES OF CLIMATE AND ECONOMICS
with Florence Windfall
We invite each participant to share their own impressions of climate change or economic change whether it’s their own experience and ideas or those of someone they recommend we read. Participants are welcome to read aloud from an author whose text they have on hand or walk us through their ideas in their own words — or just speak from experience. We ask that participants stick to climate or economic topics, broadly interpreted. What climate changes or economic changes have you observed or read about that you want to share? How are ecosystems of the Earth becoming unbalanced; how are institutions of our civilization becoming destabilized? What is your response to some or all of the damages these crises are causing, and/or what expert(s) do you rely upon to tell us about them? Let’s share what we think the climate or economic changes are and share our personal responses to these and/or our theoretical understanding of them. We try to avoid speculation and fantasy and stick to the facts and reality as we understand them.
Everyone will have 15 minutes to make their point or express their feelings. Discussion will follow each participant’s presentation. The time allowed for discussion will be longer or shorter depending on how many participants there are. If you are not so familiar with current developments in climate change science or climate collapse, several links to articles and videos for your viewing pleasure are listed on our website post, shown below. For articles about current developments in global economics and global economic collapse, have a look at our past posts for Earth Awareness. We post every month.
$5 donations are requested.
