Environmental Forum of Marin presents Congressman Jared Huffman and award-winning Bay Area authors, Arlie Hochschild and Mark Hertsgaard, for a lively evening of discussion about how and why our values and beliefs on environmental issues vary across the political divide.  

We all want to breathe clean air and drink clean water, but our priorities can be misaligned and our thinking on environmental standards incompatible. Finding common ground requires understanding other perspectives. Can we do this and bridge the political divide for effective environmental problem-solving?

Program Speakers (bios)

Jared Huffman will introduce this program by sharing some of his experiences "bridging the divide" and his approach to doing so. Following will be a lively presentation and discussion by Arlie Hochschild, Professor Emerita of Sociology at UC Berkeley and author of Strangers in Their Own Land: Anger and Mourning on the American Right and Mark Hertsgaard, environmental correspondent for The Nation and author of Hot: Living Through the Next Fifty Years on Earth.
