Description

Join the discussion during Kononia Hour between the early and late services on Sunday, 9:30 – 10:30 am.  Talks will be led by four longstanding members of our Mountain View Faith community and Green Earth Team.

The first discussions will be a book study looking at Bill Gates’ book, How to Avoid a Climate Disaster: The Solutions We Have and the Breakthroughs We Need. Copies of the book are available in the Narthex to borrow. You are welcome to join whether you have read the book or not.

November 14: Actions – Gary Schmitz

The book ends on an optimistic note with solutions that society needs to undertake to stop the looming climate disaster. These solutions include the role of federal, state and local governments in investing in research and development, building the proper infrastructure, strengthening clean energy standards, and instituting carbon taxes. The final chapter asks what actions we, as individuals, can take to solve climate change. Gary Schmitz is an economist who worked in the energy area for more than 40 years in various state government roles, at the University of Colorado and as a consultant. He was the chief economist at the Colorado Public Utilities Commission for 19 years, and was closely involved in the development of Colorado’s energy policy.
