A Good War – Mobilizing Canada for the Climate Emergency
A free webinar hosted by Sierra Club BC with author Seth Klein
Thursday, April 22, 2021 from 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. PT
How can we take large-scale climate action to provide a healthy world for future generations? The task is daunting–but there’s hope.
Canadian author Seth Klein’s new book, A Good War, explores how we can align our politics and economy with what the science says we must do to address the climate crisis. Learning from the past, Seth investigates the way that Canada quickly–and radically–retooled its economy for the Second World War. Just as we have seen governments respond to the COVID-19 pandemic with speed and efficiency previously unimaginable, so too can we respond to the climate emergency.
Join us at 11 a.m. PT on Earth Day (Thursday, April 22) for a conversation with SCBC climate justice campaigner Anjali Appadurai, SCBC lead organizer Flossie Baker and Seth Klein as they discuss the obstacles to meaningful climate action and what we can do to overcome them.
