Re: Reigniting the Climate Group at FUS

Hi Catherine,

We've met before, though I don't recall if it was climate-related. I
remember that you gave me a ride to the Wellstone Center in St. Paul.

I've been a climate activist since 2013, working with MNIPL and primarily
MN350. Lately I haven't been active because of health problems (a heart
condition) and because we lost the climate change fight at the end of
January 2011 without firing a shot. Since we face the collapse of
civilization as soon as 2036 and certainly no later than 2055, at this
point we can only focus on mitigation, adaptation, and trying to convince a
national or international organization (the IPCC would be best) or a
knowledgeable billionaire who shares our understanding (e.g., Tom Steyer)
to initiate geoengineering. I hope you're planning to suggest that to FUS
folks on September 17. I can't help with the planning, but I can attend the
discussion on the 17th.

I Think Greta Thunberg's TED Talk would be great to show. See you on the
