Environmental guru Lester Brown discusses
PLAN B 3.0: MOBILIZING TO SAVE CIVILIZATION
Friday, February 22, 2008, 7:30 p.m.
FREE and Open to the Public
How is a world population of 8 billion fed? If China’s economy fails, what impact will it have on global environment? As resources are depleted world-wide, what are the long term political and economic consequences? How can nations cut carbon emissions by the year 2020? What will mobilize citizens world-wide to take steps to save the planet?
Lester Brown, founder of the Earth Policy Institute and widely regarded as the world’s leading environmental visionary, has updated his earlier Plan B---to even more starkly lay out the environmental crisis the world faces. Now updated to Plan B 3.0, Lester Brown will present his urgent analysis and call to action at Cambridge Forum, on Friday, February 22, at 7:30 pm. The forum will be held in the meetinghouse at First Parish in Cambridge (Mass Ave. and Church Street in Harvard Square).
