Planetary Collapse: Psychological and Emotional Impacts

Tuesday, October 29, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Facing the end of our lives is daunting.  Facing the end of life as we know it on Earth is overwhelming.  This meeting will cover scientific facts about climate change and planetary collapse, as well as human responses to these facts.  Loosely based on books such as The Uninhabitable Earth (David Wallace-Wells, 2019), Losing Earth (Nathaniel Rich, 2019), we will share our observations, fears, and––possibly––our hopes.   Featured speakers include Alex Trope, MD, Climate Psychiatry Alliance (UCSF Department of Psychiatry), etc.

After this meeting, a bibliography will be distributed electronically to participants who elect to receive it.

How to find us: Planetary Collapse is taking place in the Latino/Hispanic Community Meeting Room on October 29th. It is not a Library-sponsored event. We are posting two volunteers with “Planetary Collapse” placards, one at the 100 Larkin entrance and second at Grove Street entrance.

Free but reservations requested:  planetarycollapse10.29@gmail.com
