We all remember seeing or hearing about "Inconvenient Truth" back in 2007, but what's happened since then? Founded and chaired by Al Gore, The Climate Reality Project is bringing the latest facts and reality about the climate crisis to communities all around the World. Sustainable Lafayette will host a Climate Reality presentation at the Lafayette Library on Wednesday, November 2nd at 7pm at the Lafayette Library. The presentation will be given by Sailesh Rao, the founder and president of Climate Healers, and a serial entrepreneur with a PhD in Electrical Engineering from Stanford. Besides covering the scientific reasons for the climate crisis, Sailesh's special twist is what he calls "Carbon Dharma". Dharma is a Sanskrit word that loosely translates to "the right action under the circumstances" and helps make the case for inspired, concerted action - like what he sees happening in Lafayette. Sailesh will also explain the controversial Keystone pipeline project and why so many environmental groups are protesting against it.
