Revolution Books, Berkeley

2444 Durant Avenue
New Hours: 3 pm–7 pm Mon, 11 am–7 pm Tues–Sat, 1 pm–6 pm Sun


December 12, Wednesday, 7 pm
Presentation and discussion of the new U.S. climate report: a dire warning from the scientific community. “Earth’s climate is now changing faster than at any point in the history of modern civilization, primarily as a result of human activities…. The assumption that current and future climate conditions will resemble the recent past is no longer valid.” From the Fourth National Climate Assessment (NCA4): “Impacts, Risks, and Adaptation in the United States.” We will discuss the environmental catastrophe we face, and why we must act NOW, with the urgency that the situation demands, to fight against the devastation caused by climate change. And why we must work to make communist revolution, because only such a revolution offers a real path to stop this and put all of society on a radically different course.
