Presentation: Climate Change & National Security – October 30

Richland Public Library, 955 Northgate Dr. in Richland
From 7 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Free to attend

The national security community expects our changing climate to present a large number of challenges. The US Navy will have to grapple with newly opened Arctic Sea lanes and rising sea level impacts on its bases, and we expect sea level rise and changes in water and food availability to stimulate large population movements during this century. The former commander of the United States Pacific Command said that climate change was his largest security concern.

Bob Hallahan, retired Navy Commander, will be speaking on these topics and the military response.

A classic work of American theatre, based on the Scopes Monkey Trial of 1925, which pitted Clarence Darrow against William Jennings Bryan in defense of a schoolteacher accused of teaching the theory of evolution.

The accused was a slight, frightened man who had deliberately broken the law. His trial was a Roman circus. The chief gladiators were two great legal giants of the century. Like two bull elephants locked in mortal combat, they bellowed and roared imprecations and abuse. The spectators sat uneasily in the sweltering heat with murder in their hearts, barely able to restrain themselves. At stake was the freedom of every American. One of the most moving and meaningful plays of our generation.
Future dates: November 8-10 & 15-17
