I'm writing to you with a request for assistance. Dr. Guy McPherson (a conservation biologist and professor emeritus at the University of Arizona) is a friend of mine who speaks and writes on the topic of climate change and the importance of creating durable living arrangements. He's coming to Massachusetts from approximately Nov. 25 to Dec. 5 (although I don't think he's pinned it down precisely yet). I'm helping him to identify possible venues for him to speak. I think his message is extremely compelling and would give the community plenty of food for thought and inspiration for action. You can read his writings and see videos of some of his presentations at guymcpherson.com. He has also written the book "Walking Away from Empire" in which he details how he left his university position to live off-grid in the desert in New Mexico.
