Special Programming

NOV. 7 UPDATE: Advance tickets are sold out; standby tickets might be available at the door beginning at 7 pm. 

“Do The Math” is a galvanizing new campaign led by environmental author and activist Bill McKibben and cultural critic Naomi Klein. Based on McKibben’s widely read Rolling Stone article “Global Warming’s Terrifying New Math” (link below), the tour aims to catalyze a global movement to address the climate crisis and challenge the power of the fossil-fuel industry head-on. Traveling the U.S this fall, 350.orgfounder McKibben brings together a revolving cast of speakers, activists, and musicians (musical guest for this Seattle event: Oregon native Nahko, of Medicine for the People, in a solo appearance) along with some of the world’s leading thinkers, visionaries, and change-makers in an interdisciplinary program designed to transform our economic landscape and inspire people to take action commensurate with the scale of the climate crisis. Presented by Town Hall.

This event has been moved to the Mark S. Taper Foundation Auditorium at Benaroya Hall, 200 University St.,  Seattle, WA 98101.

    Wow! In honor of Elaine Sanders I plan to advertise and organize people interested in going to this event. We get to choose between Seattle or Portland in November. Anyone else interested in going? I can drive a truckload of us, or you can drive your much more energy efficient vehicle for a fewer number of us who want to travel from Olympia to see this event. I will be putting up posters around town soon, So keep your eyes open. Sounds like a great event to help us encourage divestment of our local colleges and universities in carbon fuel industries. Anyone have any idea what Washington state funded schools investment funds are in? A local campaign needs to get started. I’m only here till the end of November this year, probably. But I’d like to help get the ball rolling since Elaine is no longer here to do it. Call me if you are interested. Sande 360 298-0304.

    The timing is impeccable, after Sandy. Don’t miss this. Bill McKibben is the main leader for galvanizing large scale attention and change with climate change.
