38] –On Wed., Nov. 10 at 3 PM ET, catch Pathways to Nuclear
War with North Korea: The Risks of Catastrophe in 2017 and Today by Van
Jackson. How dangerous was the 2017 nuclear crisis with North Korea? How did it
come about? How did the crisis end without war? And what are the chances of
reliving a crisis of that magnitude on the Korean Peninsula? This talk, based
on the book On the Brink: Trump, Kim, and the Threat of Nuclear War, will
reveal the pathways to war in 2017, why summit diplomacy ultimately failed, and
the prospects of it all happening again. It will argue that while the
personalized insults and caprice of the 2017 crisis made the Korean Peninsula
uniquely combustible, the structure that made nuclear war possible in the first
place is even more pressurized today than in 2017. The sponsor is the Syracuse University
Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs. Register at
Rosenthal (GCAN) <email@example.com> indicated that you are
invited to a meeting of the Greenbelt Climate Action Network (GCAN) on Wed.,
Nov. 10 from 7 to 9 PM ET. Invite your friends on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/461805288620086.
Learn about the Prince George's County Climate Action Plan. The guest speaker
will be Janet Gingold. The plan has just been released for a month of public
comment at http://mypgc.us/climateactionplan. Discuss what type of comments we
want to submit, to make sure the PG County Council accepts the plan and enacts
necessary legislation. Also hear from two representatives of the Energy
Foundation Coalition, Emily Frias and Cecilia Plante. The coalition spent all
summer in a process to narrow down select pieces of state legislation to
support in the upcoming Maryland General Assembly in January 2022. Potential
bills fall into four categories: Fossil Fuel Legislation, Buildings
Legislation, Transportation Legislation, and Renewable Energy Legislation.
Learn what bills "won" in each category and discuss how GCAN can
support this coalition as we lobby in Annapolis, beginning in January.
