Nobel Recipient to Speak

Dr. Steve Running, Nobel Peace Prize Recipient for his work on climate change, to speak at CRG annual meeting March 26

Cabinet Resource Group has always drawn interesting speakers for the annual meeting. Members have enjoyed learning from biologists, authors, and activists. This year, however, CRG outdid itself by inviting Dr. Steve Running, 2007 Nobel Peace Prize recipient for his work on global climate change, to educate and inspire members at the annual CRG meeting. Dr. Running, internationally respected professor of ecology, and a very funny fellow, has entitled the speech he intends to present on March 26, “After this winter, what does the global warming crowd say now?” His presentation is planned for 7 pm after an issues update and annual board elections. The public is welcome to this event which will occur at the lovely Big Horn Lodge located near mile marker 7 on Highway # 56 (The Bull River Highway.)

If this presentation is as well put together as his lecture, Five Stages of Climate Grief, listeners will be encouraged to commit climate activism on a personal as well as public stage. Dr. Running has the evidence at his fingertips that the oceans are warming, hurricanes are fiercer, sea ice is thinning, snow melt is sooner, fall frosts are later, and glaciers are melting. Yet, it seems he has been able to move beyond the fourth stage of climate grief –depression—to the fifth stage of acceptance, which requires action.
