HANCOCK -- Over 150 people have attended the first two Climate Café events hosted by the Keweenaw Climate Community (KCC) group, and the series of discussion events will continue this week.

What's the deal with climate change? What do we do about it?

In the third of a four-part event series, KCC members cover what people are planning to do in response to climate change. They will hold a short presentation followed with an open discussion from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 3, at the Orpheum Theater in Hancock, with free pizza and soft drinks for attendees. The final event will be on Dec. 1. All are welcome to attend, including kids.

Attendance is encouraged even if you have not previously attended KCC events. There is no admission charge, but small donations to help cover food and space rental costs will be accepted.

Speakers for this Thursday's event will be Robert Handler of Michigan Tech's Sustainable Futures Institute and Stephen Handler of the U.S. Forest Service. 

The series is organized by the KCC and sponsored by the local chapter of the American Chemical Society and the Department of Social Sciences at Michigan Tech. For more information please contact Sarah Green (sgreen@mtu.edu 906-487-3419) or Rob Handler (rhandler@mtu.edu, 906-487-3612).
