Arlington Reads Green Book Talk. Tuesday, May 8, 7 p.m. Arlington Central Library Auditorium, 1015 N. Quincy Street, near the Ballston and Virginia Square Metro stops. Mike Tidwell, director of the Chesapeake Climate Action Network will discuss his book, The Ravaging Tide: Strange Weather, Future Katrinas, and the Coming Death of America's Coastal Cities. Copies of the book will be available. More information: 703-228-5585.
I really encourage you to come out to this event. Mike's a fascinating guy and he walks the walk, having converted his entire house to renewable energy sources, even installing a heater that runs on corn kernels (the house has a barely detectable smell of fresh popcorn).
