Tumultuous Times – Talk by John James

9 April, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

$10 – $20


“Remaining Conscious and Resilient in Tumultuous Times”

Talk being given by John James in the Library of the Carrington Hotel, Katoomba on Tuesday 9th April at 7pm


Dr John James OAM is a scholar and researcher living in Hartley Vale. He has spent the past 30 years involved in the Global Warming and pollution debate and has lectured extensively on this in many countries, including the US and UK. In 2006 he created the www.planetextinction.com site to inform people of the situation. He has attended many conferences, both scientific to understand the situation we are all in, and political to attempt to find community-based answers.

This talk is to support people to build local communities that will support us all. In the times that are coming, and which cannot now be stopped, we need to know what to do and to start planning. At least to start thinking out the problems that we are not beginning to experience.

“Cannot stop”? The process of heating the planet has now reached a point that a number of key tipping points seem to have been triggered. These will keep on making the situation more unbearable even if we could stop polluting the world right away.

The world population is too large for the declining water and food. There will be a reduction. How do we handle the grief and do so in such a way that we can be of the greatest assistance to our friends, family and neighbours?  This is the great question of the coming decade.




John James is giving an enriching talk and discussion on how we can develop community, eat well and have the

resilience to live with love and splendour in the uncertainty of the future.
