General Meeting Monday, January 26, 2015 7:00 pm - Gasland: Can you light your water on fire?
Always seeking cheaper ways to produce fossil fuels that we can voraciously consume, the oil and gas industry developed a way to get the gas out of the ground--a hydraulic drilling process called "fracking"-and suddenly America finds itself on the precipice of becoming an energy superpower. This movie is a compelling narrative on the largest domestic drilling campaign in modern history and an understanding of why drilling can never be made safe.
General Meeting Monday, February 23, 2015 7:00 pm - FIRE AND WATER, A Warming World, California’s Weather, and a Bipartisan Solution.
California has been hit hard by drought and wildfires in recent years. These events have left many Californians wondering, is this extreme weather linked to global warming, and what can we expect for the future? In this 'Fire and Water' event, scientist Dana Nuccitelli will discuss and answer questions about the latest scientific research into the possible links between climate change and California's wildfires and drought, and projections of their future changes in a warming world. The event will also include discussion of a proposed free market, bipartisan solution supported by many liberals and conservatives alike.
General Meeting, Monday, March 23, 7:00 pm - Carnivorous Plants
Come hear about these unusual plants found in nature. Barry Rice will speak about the nature of carnivorous plants, as we currently understand them. He will also be reminding us of the wonderful species that we have here in California. And his website gives us a view on his spectacular photography of these unique plants http://www.sarracenia.com
