*WHAT EVERY ENVIRONMENTALIST SHOULD KNOW...*
What is it that causes environmental groups to find themselves working
against one another? What is the secret underlying element that binds
Kurt Cobb, publisher of Resource Insights
<http://www.resourceinsights.blogspot.com/>, travels to Middleville to
deliver a live multimedia talk of his groundbreaking presentation “What
Every Environmentalist Should Know (but probably doesn’t).
Cobb is a freelance writer who speaks and writes frequently on energy
and the environment. He is a columnist for the Paris-based science news
site Scitizen <http://www.scitizen.com/> and his work has also been
featured on Energy Bulletin <http://www.energybulletin.net/>, 321energy

Online <http://blogs.wsj.com/energy/2007/02/26/> and many other sites.
"The environmental movement is so splintered because most in it don't
understand what trouble we are in," said Cobb. "Neither do they
understand the connections between the various environmental problems."
The Local Future sponsored event begins at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 18
at the Thornapple Township Hall on Main Street in Middleville.
This is one of the "Sustainability Series" which continues on Tuesdays.
On March 25, a DVD presentation of Michael Shuman explores ways to
improve the local economy despite inflation and rising gas prices. On
April 1, a DVD presentation of professor and environmental writer David
Orr looks into climate change, peak oil, and the future. These two
events will be held at the Thornapple Township Emergency Services
Building at 128 High Street in Middleville
Sustainability Series events are free and open to the public. RSVP's are
appreciated but not required to organizer Aaron Wissner at
