There is so much news about environment and climate change that it becomes overwhelming. A Manhattan local has written a great book to help you sort it all out and put it in context. Humanity’s Footprint by KSU biology professor Walter Dodds finds a balance between gloom and doom pessimists and those that deny that there is a problem. He explains the challenges we are facing in clear language, understandable even to those of us who have never particularly understood science. He also offers some hopeful solutions.
Professor Dodds will be speaking at the library next Tuesday, April 22 at 7:00 in the library auditorium as part of our Energy Week activities. On Wednesday at 7:00 in the auditorium, some speakers are coming in to talk about saving energy in the home. We’ll have Jennifer Wilson from Riley County Extension, Christine Reimler from the Kansas Housing Resources Corporation, and Gina Penzig from Westar Energy on hand to help you lower that energy bill.
