A Rant About The Biggest Pyramid Scheme of Them All

Wesleyan physics professor Brian Stewart is well-known for his semi-annual, on-campus rants on a variety of topics. Now Stewart brings his rant to town.

The Biggest Pyramid Scam of All

Tuesday, September 15, 7 – 8:30 p.m.
At First Church of Christ
190 Court Street, Middletown

The talk will explore the human "footprint" on Earth. Are we running out of oil and other natural resources? Is global warming pollution real? Are there simply too many of us? And if so, is there anything we can do as individuals to help create a sustainable future?

Before the program -- Meet Your Greens drinks gathering (Sept. 15, 5-7pm at Eli Cannon's. (a networking opportunity for environmental activists and educators)
