Do the Math Tour with Bill McKibben of 350.org in Portland November 8

Free live simulcast of sold-out Bill McKibben global warming campaign event to take place at PSU Ballroom Thursday Nov. 8.
In July, Bill McKibben's Rolling Stone article "Global Warming's Terrifying New Math" (www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/global-warmings-terrifying-new-math-20120719
math.350.org/) went viral. The followup begins right after the election. On November 8th 350.org will introduce Portland to the next and most powerful campaign to fight global warming, the "Do the Math Tour!" featuring Bill McKibben, Josh Fox ("Gasland"), and others.

Tickets for the live show at the First Congregational United Church are sold out but a free live simulcast will take place at the PSU Smith Center Ballroom at 7:30pm (doors open at 6:30). Free tickets available at:  http://dothemathgeneralpublic.eventbrite.com/
