By my own choice, I don’t get out much these days. My favorite hangouts are my cozy, kitted-out truck (The Nanopalace) and the school library here at EcoVersity. But even a homebody’s gotta get out sometime. Tonight I’m going with some other EcoVersity folks (interns, teachers, staff, miscellaneous hangers-on) to Al Gore’s global warming movie, An Inconvenient Truth, which opens tonight at Devargas Theater. I do not go see doom-and-gloom films unless they also offer hope, practical advice, etc., which this film supposedly does. Back home in Austin, the movie opened two whole weeks ago, and friends who saw it liked it.
Then tomorrow I’m headed down the street to Plants of the Southwest, where Brad Lancaster, author of Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands, will be giving a presentation. For those of you in the Santa Fe listening area who might be interested, Plants of the Southwest is located at 3095 Agua Fria, and the presentation starts at 3:00 on Saturday.
