Climate Crisis Town Hall social at the Spoke Easy
September 4, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT
if you’re like us you’ve been watching the new revelations around climate change with rising alarm. Milestones forecasted for 2070 are being seen with modern eyes; a weather station north of the artic circle last month reported a reading of 94.6 degrees fahrenheit, Greenland just put up a commemorative plaque for the first ice sheet lost to warming. The indications of what’s happening are irrefutable; climate change is happening at a far more aggressive pace than has been broadly forecasted.
CNN is hosting an unprecedented prime time event- they are arranging a 7 hour climate crisis town hall with the top ten polling Democratic Presidential nominees. As an issue that deeply concerns us, especially those of us with children, we want to host an event to watch this very likely landmark event. So we’ve asked the nice folks at the Spoke Easy on Elizabeth avenue to host us as we watch it. The Spoke Easy is a delightful bike shop/bar that’s run by the bike enthusiast architects who work in the building above it and has a wonderful covered patio and interior space. It’s a charming location we’ve wanted to visit for a while; it doesn’t have a kitchen of its own but is surrounded by many restaurants that will take out/deliver so food should not be a problem. Come on out and join us!
