Here's a last minute reminder of the next Citizens Climate Lobby monthly meeting tomorrow morning at 10:45 am at various Twin Cities locations. Catherine Jordan, Cecelia Newton, and I from CCC/EcoMinds attended portions of the CCL regional conference last Saturday along with a large and enthusiastic group of other climate activists, so I expect that enthusiasm to spill over to tomorrow's meetings. I read 'The Righteous Mind' last summer, and I've been recommending it to family and friends since. I encourage you to read the book as well to assist in engaging in climate conversations with a range of folks from a variety of political persuasions. Although I'll be discussing the book on Tuesday at a class I'm taking at the University of Minnesota and wouldn't ordinarily bus to Linden Hills to hear Haidt, if there are others who are interested in attending that meeting and let me know, I'd be happy to show up as well. In that case, perhaps we could gather somewhere nearby for further discussion afterwards, including considering if we think it would benefit CCC/EcoMinds folks to read and discuss the book together. Onward and upward.

Guest speaker (by national conference call) on February 1 will be Jon athan Haidt , author of ' The Righteous Mind ' .
