Tuesday: Meet One of the DC Area's Climate Action Leaders

After my rant on Glenn Beck this week, I thought I'd direct you to a more positive voice on climate change!
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). Read more about him in this Mother Jones article.

The Green Miles will be there, so if you see him, be sure to say hello. And if you haven't figured it out by now, much like Rickey Henderson, The Green Miles enjoys referring to himself in the third person.

You can get more details on this and other events sponsored by Arlingtonians for a Clean Environment at the ACE website.
