Action on climate change a moral commitment: author

Dahr Jamail to speak in Sooke on June 4

Award-winning journalist and author Dahr Jamail, who has travelled the world to witness the effects of climate change first-hand, will be speaking in Sooke on June 4.

Jamail’s new book is titled The End of Ice: Bearing Witness and Finding Meaning in the Path of Climate Disruption.

“My book and my talks provide a full and comprehensive overview of how far along we are on this runaway climate disruption path. Then I take a deep dive into answering the question: ‘How, then, shall we live?’” Jamail said.

“I don’t peddle hope, but offer a mature perspective on the need for a deep morality, a conviction and commitment to doing all we can.”

Jamail’s book tour, which includes Sooke, Salt Spring Island, Duncan and Victoria, is sponsored by Transition Sooke, Sierra Club of B.C., Council of Canadians, One Cowichan, KAIROS Victoria and University of Victoria Social Justice Studies.

Jamail’s Sooke talk is June 4 at Holy Trinity Anglican Church at 7 p.m. Admission is by donation.
