Bill Kellogg Discussion Series

Our next meeting of the Bill Kellogg UNA-BC Discussion Series will be held on Tuesday April 25, 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. in the Arapahoe Room of the Main Branch of the Boulder Public Library.

Our discussion “The Times They Are A-Changing: Possible Political, Economic and Environmental Changes” will be led by Ron Forthofer, whom many of you know from his local activism on environmental and peace issues. Ron was a Professor of Biostatistics at the School of Public Health at the University of Texas in Houston for almost 20 years before retiring and moving to Boulder County in 1991. Since retirement, he has been a volunteer activist for peace and social justice working with the Rocky Mountain Peace and Justice Center and a few other groups. He also ran for Congress in 2000 and Governor in 2002 for the Colorado Green



Ron will share some thoughts and encourage discussion on themes suggested by the title, in his own words, “I think that the world is changing relatively quickly, both politically and environmentally. I think

that the days may be numbered for US hegemony which could produce enormous changes. In addition, climate chaos is going to greatly change things, creating all kinds of disasters including, but not limited

to, large migrations from coasts and low lying areas as well as many parts of Africa.”
