Tuesday, Dec. 3rd, 7 pm-8:30 pm, Heading for Extinction Talk, at The Other Side, 2011 Genesee Street, Utica.  The planet is in ecological crisis: we are in the midst of the sixth mass extinction event this planet has experienced. Scientists believe we may have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown that will have dramatic repercussions on our food systems.  Climate change will increase the likelihood of crop failure as desertification, flooding, and loss of soil fertility occur more frequently.  This is an emergency.  In this talk, climate speakers from Extinction Rebellion will share the latest climate science on where our planet is heading, discuss some of the current psychology around climate change, and offer solutions through the study of social movements.
