Submitted by the Event Organizer
Governor Jerry Brown is determined to build the Delta Tunnels through the Sacramento/San Joaquin River Delta. The once-and-future Peripheral Canal is the latest plumbing scheme to follow the damming and diking of rivers and swamps which began with intensive Chinese manual labor in the 19th century. California has already radically altered its plumbing, but we’ll also look to future efforts at riparian restoration, dam deconstruction, and maintaining or altering our massive hydrological infrastructure. Tim Stroshane, Jason Rainey, and Scott Kildall (w/ 3-D maps of SF’s water infrastructure).
These talks are meant as an antidote to historical amnesia, to change the climate of critical discussion in San Francisco, and as a place to meet and talk unmediated by corporations, official spokespeople, religion, political parties, or dogma.
We are grateful to the City Lights Foundation and the Rainbow Grocery Cooperative for helping make these Talks happen.
All events are free (donations appreciated).
