Ignition: What You Can Do to Fight Global Warming and Spark a Movement
Sissel A. Waage, Ph.D., Author
Wednesday, September 5th. The Commonwealth Club San Francisco.
The evidence is irrefutable: global warming is real. While the debate continues about just how much damage spiking temperatures will wreak, we know the threat to our homes, health, and even way of life. Sissel Waage has co-edited a book that brings together some of the world’s finest thinkers and advocates to jump start the ultimate green revolution. The approaches advocated are various and draw on insights from past social movements. Sissel Waage’s talk will focus on the question we all face: “What can I do?”
And don’t forget the Ghirardelli Square Chocolate Festival….
September 8-9. 12 – 5 p.m.
The 12th Annual Ghirardelli Square Chocolate Festival, benefiting Project Open Hand, will feature more than 30 booths at the weekend-long festival. There will be a myriad of wonderful chocolate treats from Ghirardelli Chocolate and some of the Bay Area’s best restaurants and bakeries.
Heads Up this Month in SF:
Have a Great Week!
