Going Carbon Negative

Hosted by Commonwealth Club of California and Climate One

TICKETS

The math is clear: lowering greenhouse gas emissions is not enough to keep the earth below 1.5 degrees Celsius of post-industrial warming. The latest science states that actively removing carbon from the atmosphere — storing it in rocks, soil, trees, and even turning it into products like concrete — is critical to restore the carbon and energy balance. To keep our planet from dangerous levels of warming, we’ll need to go carbon negative.

Is carbon removal a cost-effective solution to addressing climate change? Which natural and technological approaches are the most promising? Join us for a conversation with Noah Deich, Executive Director at Carbon180, on the necessary negatives for a stable climate.

Why Has Nationalism Come Roaring Back?

Hosted by Commonwealth Club of California

TICKETS

John Judis, Author, The Nationalist Revival: Trade, Immigration, and the Revolt Against Globalization

Monday Night Philosophy investigates why the world is grappling with a fierce resurgence of “us versus them” nationalism. Veteran political reporter and author John Judis analyzes the underlying causes of the nationalist revolt and its global impact, arguing that nationalism is an inescapable aspect of politics that the Left has ceded to the Right. The result: the rise of leaders such as Donald Trump in the United States and Viktor Orbán in Hungary. Judis looks to the future and urges leaders to identify and reclaim what is valid in nationalism while recognizing that it is in a country’s national interest to work together with strong international institutions.

Location: 110 The Embarcadero, Toni Rembe Rock Auditorium, San Francisco
Time: 5:30 p.m. check-in, 6 p.m. program, 7 p.m. book signing

Bill Press: The Case Against Trump

Hosted by Commonwealth Club of California

Bill Press, Host, Bill Press Show; Author, Trump Must Go: The Top 100 Reasons to Dump Trump (and One to Keep Him); Twitter @bpshow

"I'd give us an A." ―President Donald Trump, on his first 100 days in office.

Bill Press, a popular radio host and former California Democratic chair, argues the opposite: that every day that Trump stays in office, he diminishes the United States and its people.

In his new book, Trump Must Go, Press offers 100 reasons why he believes Trump needs to be removed from office, whether by impeachment, the 25th Amendment or the ballot box. Ranging from banning federal employees’ use of the phrase “climate change” to making disparaging comments about African nations and countries such as Haiti and El Salvador, Press lists his reasons why he believes the president is unfit for office. Press says that Trump’s calendar is marked with extensive “executive time” so he can tweet, golf and watch TV.

Nobody is Above the Law: San Francisco (Civic Center)

  • Civic Center San Francisco, CA 94102 (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

More about this EVENT.

The Rapid Response protest against Trump’s meddling with the Mueller investigation is TODAY at 5pm at Civic Center. This protest comes in response to yesterday’s ouster of Jeff Sessions. Rosenstein has been sidelined on the Mueller investigation, with acting Attorney General Whitaker now in control of the investigation. We demand that Whitaker recuse himself due to his previous statements on the investigation. Sign up now at MoveOn.org to stay updated. RSVP for the event here.

While you’re getting ready to hit the streets, take a moment to celebrate our election results! We had a lot of hopes and a lot of worries going into Tuesday. Many of us continued to campaign until the end of voting to help flip Congress and build support for Props C and 10. 

We’ve been working for months to build a Blue Wave. Tuesday, the wave arrived and here's what washed up:

  • A House majority.

  • Many, many state-level wins across the country, including governor and legislative seats (flipping control to Democrats in six states), and ballot propositions.

  • San Francisco’s Prop C passed.

  • We didn’t win the Senate, but we didn’t expect to.

  • Check out a more detailed list of some of the many progressive victories we scored on Tuesday.

Revel in our successes, and let them fuel you. The fight isn’t over, but it will change now that we have a Democratic House Majority at our back and the Speaker’s gavel at our side. In the next few days, Indivisible National will publish a new guide to cover how we’ll go from taking the House to taking the White House. For a sneak peek of the plan, join Indivisible National's movement-wide strategy call next Tuesday at 8pm ET/5pm PT.

We have a lot of work ahead of us. Take a moment of rest, find inspiration in Tuesday’s victories, and let’s get back to it. See you Sunday!

We Will Not Be Erased; What's Next? A Community Discussion

Hosted by Commonwealth Club of California

The Trump administration recently unleashed what's been criticized as another attack on transgender Americans by calling for the Department of Health and Human Services to redefine sex as biological under Title IX, which prevents gender-based discrimination. In response, LGBTQ communities and allies have mobilized community actions calling out the administration for what they're calling a blatant attempt to erase trans and gender nonconforming communities.

Join us for an informational discussion with community experts on strategies to address this latest attack and the impact of the upcoming November 6 election. Learn more on what this memo means, what people can do next.

If you are upset about evictions, rising rents and homelessness this is your chance to actually do something about it. Help spread the word about the two most important propositions in decades!

Yes on 10 - could allow real rent control and eviction protection to San Franciscans and across the state.

Yes on Prop C - because the homelessness is a humanitarian crisis that hurts us all. The richest corporations who got a huge tax break from Trump can pay a small amount the build housing and provide services to our homeless neighbors.
