-A A +A
By Special to the Monitor

The Greenland Ice Sheet has experienced record melting in recent years and is likely to contribute to sea level rise as well as to possible changes in ocean circulation in the future.Meanwhile, the annual addition of 70 million people to world population stresses resources in countries where water tables are falling and wells are going dry, forests are shrinking, soils are eroding and grasslands are turning into deserts. Where countries are overwhelmed by these trends, weaker governments are breaking down. Each year the number of failing states increases. Failing states are an early sign of a failing civilization.In his new book, “Plan B 3.0 – Mobilizing to Save Civilization,” Lester Brown lays out a comprehensive plan to reverse these disasters, with four areas of concentration: climate stabilization, population stabilization, poverty eradication and the restoration of the earth’s ecosystemsA book discussion group will be held at the Unitarian Church of Los Alamos, 1738 N. Sage St., to study “Plan B 3.0.” The group will meet from 7-8:30 p.m. Wednesdays beginning Jan. 9 in the Hearth Room.For more information or to sign up, contact the church office, 662-2346, or e-mail BookGroup@uulosalamos.org.
