According to the Union of Concerned Scientists, a nonprofit science advocacy organization based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the Michigan summer of 2095 will resemble that of a current-day Arkansas summer—dry as a cactus needle and considerably warmer than what we get here in the Mitten. And while that future may be irreversible, U-M grad, author, and activist Tom Hayden believes something can and should be done. He also believes Michigan and the Great Lakes region should be at the forefront of the clean energy economic movement. The problems of the economic recession and climate crisis must be addressed in a Global Green New Deal, he says.

 

Hayden returns to Ann Arbor on Monday, September 15 at 7 pm at the downtown library, at 343 S. Fifth Ave. for a call to arms against the climate crisis.
