Tackling Peak Oil, Climate Change and Economic Breakdown
You are warmly invited to the launch of Feasta's new book, Fleeing Vesuvius: Overcoming the Risks of economic and environmental collapse, at 3pm on Saturday, 20th November. The event is being held in European Union House, 18 Dawson Street, Dublin 2
The book is to be launched by Fr. Sean McDonagh, a Feasta member and a prolific author, his most recent books being Dying for Water (2003), The Death of Life : The Horror of Extinction (2004) and Climate Change: The Challenge to Us All (2006). In recent times he has been the central coordinator for Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation for the Columban
missionaries and the chairperson of Greenpeace in Ireland. He then
became a founding board member of Voice, the successor organisation to
Greenpeace when the latter left Ireland.
Father Sean McDonagh
As space in Dawson Street is limited to 100 people and, in any case, we need to ensure that the wine does not run out, please let us know if you will be coming by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
By all means bring a friend, but let us know about them, too. It would
also be a help if those who want to buy several copies of the book would
mention that in the e-mail as our stock is in Cloughjordan and we'll
have to bring lots of boxes up for the day. The book makes an ideal
Christmas present and a discount will be available to Feasta members and
to those placing quantity orders.
If you are in Ireland and can't get to the launch but would like to buy a copy of the book, you can do so either by placing your order online at http://www.feasta.org/documents/vesuvius/index.php
or by going to Books Upstairs, right opposite the entrance to Trinity
College on College Green. This is the only bookshop which will have any
copies until our Irish book trade distribution arrangements come into
effect. The bookshop price is €20. Sales outside Ireland are being
handled by Green Books and, in North America, by New Society Publishers.
