Tom Rand knows how to achieve a low carbon economy.
A green entrepreneur, investor, public speaker, and author, Rand has written the book on how capitalism can be reclaimed to provide the critically needed response to the climate change crisis.
The author of The Case for Climate Capitalism: Economic Solutions for a Planet in Crisis will share his ideas in two talks on March 28.
Rand will speak at 1 p.m. in Kaslo at the Langham Cultural Centre and at 7:30 p.m. at the Nelson United Church.
Tickets for the Kaslo talk can be reserved by calling or purchased at Sunnyside Naturals at 250-353-9667 or Willow Home Gallery at 250-353-2257. Tickets will go on sale March 9.
Admission to the Nelson talk is by a suggested $10 donation and all students will be admitted free. Rand previously spoke to a sold-out audience at the Capitol Theatre in Nelson in 2015.
Rand’s first book Kick the Fossil Fuel Habit: 10 Clean Technologies to Save Our World, published in 2009, was short-listed for the White Pine Award for non-fiction. His second book, Waking the Frog: Solutions for our Climate Paralysis, was published in 2014 by ECW Press and remained on The Globe & Mail’s non-fiction bestseller list for nine weeks. The Case for Climate Capitalism was published this week.
In order to host this event, the Nelson – West Kootenay Chapter of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby is seeking sponsors to help defray costs involved in bringing this dynamic speaker to the West Kootenay.
Citizens’ Climate Lobby is a non-profit, nonpartisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change.
