We would like a DVD record of all the panels at the roundtable. We have the
camera and the tape for recording.
However, many of the people who can use a camera also will be doing other
things to coordinate the event.
So we really need 4 or 5 more people who have experience working a camera and
could record 1 or 2 sessions.
Please let me know by Monday June 23 if you can operate a camera for a
session or two.
See you in a week,

Surviving Climate Change: Producing Less and Enjoying it More
The effects of climate change, peak oil and toxic production are here. We
know it every time we see news of weather disasters and disappearing species.
We feel it every time we buy gas. We hear it every time a child uses an asthma
Solutions are here, also. But meaningful changes are being stubbornly
ignored by government, big business and big enviro:
* A genuine effort at reducing greenhouse gases would require food to be
grown within 100 miles of where it is eaten.
* A serious climate change program would stop funding the 800 military bases
which ensure a continuous flow of oil to the US.
* The most energy efficient homes are homes that have no heating system at
* The most energy efficient cars are those that are replaced by trains,
buses, bicycles or feet.
But how do we create a society without individual cars and the expanding
mountains of garbage that are the real causes of environmental catastrophe? How
do we reduce production without worsening the lives of low income Americans and
the poor throughout the world? Is the production of luxury, waste, plastic
food and unnecessary transport and construction so monstrously large that
eliminating it could actually allow for an increase in necessities and a 30 hour
On June 27-29, 2008, we will meet in at Webster University [470 E. Lockwood
Ave.] St. Louis to discuss remaking American society. The focus will be on
developing solutions, rather than repeating the problems we all know exist. We
will seek solutions that alter the structure of US society rather than personal
The meeting will be organized as a roundtable [rather than a conference]. We
assume that many participants will have as much to contribute as speakers.
Panels will have as much time for discussion as presentations.
