Sunday, April 17, 2016 - 1:30 PM: Citizens' Climate Lobby

Citizens' Climate Lobby

 

Guest Speaker: Callie Hancock, Group Leader of the Princeton Chapter of Citizens' Climate Lobby

Join us for a talk about creating the political will to solve climate change. Citizens' Climate Lobby (CCL) is a non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change.

Callie Hancock is an architect and mother of two from Princeton. In January 2013 she started the Citizens' Climate Lobby's Princeton chapter and gives talks on solving climate change around the area.

Callie will discuss CCL's Carbon Fee and Dividend proposal, a revenue-neutral carbon tax that would positively impact the climate and the economy.

 

 

 

 

 

This meeting is free and open to the public. A Q&A session will follow the talk. Refreshments provided.

After the meeting, everyone is welcome to join us for an early dinner at Ruby Tuesday.

Saturday, May 22, 2016 - 1:30 PM: David Silverman, President of American Atheists

Fighting god

(Originally scheduled for January, but postponed due to snowpocalypse)

Guest speaker David Silverman is the author of a new book: Fighting God: An Atheist Manifesto for a Religious World.

This new book is a firebrand manifesto from one of the most recognizable faces of atheism. In his book, David Silverman - a walking, talking atheist billboard known for his appearances on Fox News - discusses the effectiveness, ethics and impact of the in-your-face-atheist who refuses to be silent.

Fighting God is a provocative, unapologetic book that takes religion to task and will give inspiration to non-believers and serve as the ultimate answer to apologists.

David will be available to sign books after the Q&A.

Be good for goodness' sake

Widespread intellectual and moral docility may be convenient for leaders in the short term, but it is suicidal for nations in the long term.  One of the criteria for national leadership should therefore be a talent for understanding, encouraging, and making constructive use of vigorous criticism.
- Carl Sagan

The lifestance of Humanism—guided by reason, inspired by compassion, and informed by experience—encourages us to live life well and fully. It evolved through the ages and continues to develop through the efforts of thoughtful people who recognize that values and ideals, however carefully wrought, are subject to change as our knowledge and understandings advance.
- from Humanist Manifesto III
