The Ecology Center and Haymarket Books present:
Climate in Crisis/ Nuclear Threat
Featuring Chris Williams and Anuradha Mittal
5 PM Saturday, April 9th
2530 San Pablo Ave, Berkeley
From oil spills in the Gulf of Mexico, to flammable tap-water caused by Hydrofracking for natural gas, to nuclear meltdowns at power plants in Japan, it is clear that the way this society produces the things it needs is harmful for both us as well as the planet.
Join us for a discussion on the ecological crisis: the dangers of fossil fuels, the risks of alternatives like nuclear power, and what real solutions can look like.
