Hello Friends of Earthworks, 
  
We are pleased to present  "A Convenient Truth: There Are Urban Solutions to Climate 
Change," a talk by our keynote speaker, Tufts University Professor 
William Moomaw. Professor Moomaw is a lead author on many of the 
science and policy reports issued by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. 
 
Prof. Moomaw's talk, will highlight local initiatives such as EarthWorks that 
are doing the ground-level work necessary to make urban settlements 
sustainable into the future, a future made even more uncertain by the 
impacts of unprecedented climate change. 

Everyone is invited to this talk--part of the EarthWorks Annual Meeting & Silent Auction 
this coming Sunday, May 20 from 5:30-8:00 at our offices at the Edward L. 
Cooper Community Garden & Education Center, 34 Linwood 
Street, Roxbury (right up the hill and behind Roxbury 
Community College.) 

I hope everyone will be able to attend to learn more 
about EarthWorks, enjoy delicious food from Haley 
House, and bid on terrific items in the silent auction 
ranging from an overnight stay, private tour and 
tasting at Truro Vineyards, to a pair of pear trees, 
to a baseball signed by future Hall of Famer Alex Cora 
(what a season he's having!!), to Boston-area museum 
passes, whale watching tix, gift certificates to local 
restaurants, and much, much more. 

Most of all, I hope you will come for the opportunity 
to strengthen your connections with neighbors, colleagues 
and friends who, like you, are working to make Boston a 
healthy, just, beautiful, and sustainable place to live, work, 
and play. 

Looking forward to seeing you Sunday!

How to Stop the Planet From Burning

We know that climate change is happening. We know that it could, if the worst predictions come true, destroy the conditions which make human life possible. 

Only one question is now worth asking: CAN IT BE STOPPED?

In HEAT <http://southendpress.org/2007/items/87798> , George Monbiot shows it can.
