"Do the Math" with Bill McKibben in Chicago
---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: "Elijah Zarlin, CREDO Action" <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Oct 26, 2012 8:35 AM Subject: "Do the Math" with Bill McKibben in Chicago To: "Daniel Stafford" <email@example.com>
The math is terrifying: Dirty energy companies can burn no more than 20% of the known remaining fossil fuels on the planet, or else our climate is in a heap of trouble.1
That means we need to be taking on the powerful oil, coal and gas companies directly — whose profit model depends on burning up our planet.
To keep our movement building and prepare for the next big fight, our friends Bill McKibben and 350 are going on the road with the "Do The Math" tour to lay out the terrifying new math of climate change, explain the odds we face and the difficult path we must walk in the coming years to create a livable future for our planet.
They'll be in Chicago on Nov. 28th. Can you make it?
"Do the Math" with Bill McKibben Athenaeum Theater, 2936 N. Southport Ave, Chicago, IL Nov. 28th at 7 PM, doors open at 6 Tickets are $10
"Do the Math" will be a unique and interactive experience, an opportunity to hear from Bill — possibly the clearest voice on climate change in our movement today — along with other special guests, about what we need to do in the fight going forward.
With each passing month, and each passing extreme drought, storm and flood, it's clear that this fight is urgent and that President Obama isn't doing enough. If he's re-elected, we don't know what else, if anything, he will do. If Romney is elected, we know he will do his best to set us on an apocalyptic path of burning our future to fatten the pockets of fossil fuel giants.
What we've learned from the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline fight is that when we band together we can take on the fossil fuel industry. Now it's time to take on the industry as a whole, and persuade our fellow residents of this planet that coal, oil and gas must be kept in the ground.
