Transition Sooke Speaker Series tackles climate change

Authors Peter Carter and Elizabeth Woodworth special guests

Transition Sooke is hosting a special evening on climate change with authors Peter Carter and Elizabeth Woodworth on Feb. 19 at the EMCS theatre.

The talk is the first Transition Sooke Speaker Series of the year.

Unprecedented Crime: Climate Change Denial and Game Changers for Survival is a persuasive climate-change book written by Carter and Woodworth.

Discover how governments, corporations and the media have been complicit in climate denial, and learn how technological solutions, civil resistance and market leadership offer hope that a genuine turnaround is still possible.

Carter and Woodworth do much more than expose the crimes against humanity – they also present actions that people can take to alleviate the consequences for today’s public and for future generations.

Carter has served as an expert reviewer for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s fifth climate change assessment in 2014. He was a family and emergency medicine practitioner before retiring to focus on the climate crisis.

Woodworth is highly engaged in climate change science and activism. She is the co-author of Unprecedented Climate Mobilization, and co-producer of the COP21 video A Climate Revolution For All. She is author of the popular handbook on nuclear weapons activism, What Can I Do? and the novel, The November Deep. For 25 years, she served as head medical librarian for the B.C. government.

Climate Change Denial and Game Changers for Survival is at EMCS Community Theatre, 6218 Sooke Rd., on Feb. 19, beginning at 7 p.m. Admission is by donation.
