Ozzie Zehner: "Green Illusions: The Dirty Secrets of Clean Energy and the Future of Environmentalism" 

When: Thu., June 14, 6-7:30 p.m. 2012

As ignorance/discussion/concern/panic (depending on your persuasions) about the global energy crisis reaches a fever pitch, UC Berkeley visiting scholar Ozzie Zehner has a simple solution: Consume less. Zehner's book, Green Illusions: The Dirty Secrets of Clean Energy and the Future of Environmentalism -- from which he reads at University Press Books (2430 Bancroft Way, Berkeley) on Thursday, June 14 -- wouldn't be the first time someone's suggested this, but it might be the most cogent and well-researched iteration of the argument. In clear prose, Zehner lays out the problems associated even with so-called "green" energy, argues that we should shift the focus from finding more energy to using less, and -- this is the best part -- actually proposes some solutions as to how to make that happen. 6 p.m., free. 510-548-0585 or UniversityPressBooks.com
