Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Professor Klare spoke at the annual dinner of Chicago Area Peace Action, ten years after first addressing them on the topic of his book "Blood and Oil". Since then the reality of climate disruption driven by a fossil fuel distorted economy leaves us wondering what we can do about climate change and the convergence of ensuing crisis.

Klare speaks of the COP 21 meeting that will take place this December in Paris and its significance, believing that President Obama is now committed to a radical departure from past US positions on the actions necessary to limit global temperature rise to 2 degrees C. He points out that massive demonstrations and civil disobedience are planned in Europe by civil society groups [to steel their politicians against the influence of pathological investors and transnational corporations]. He suggests that people look for similar actives now being planned across the U.S. in order to move Congress to support the President's plan. He fore sees that the role the US military will be changed by climate disruption.
