95 North Ave, Burlington, Vermont
Join us as we take a fresh look at the limits of the current global warming debate and how to move beyond them. Topics will include the human costs of the expanding biofuels industry, the limits of "market-based" solutions to global warming, tools for redefining the "good life," and ways to create a culture of hope.
Panelists will critique Al Gore’s limited approach to citizen/corporate action and discuss experiences on the ground in Latin America’s biofuels craze.
Brian Tokar is a long time Vermont author and activist, and a faculty member at the Institute for Social Ecology, based in Plainfield.
April Howard is a journalist, teacher and editor at UpsideDownWorld.org , a website on activism and politics in Latin America.
