Next Wednesday morning you may wake up with a hangover from an election victory celebration or from drowning your sorrows in Scotch, but by the evening you may be ready to party again, and to learn something in the process. Perhaps something important about the environment, which, depending on the outcome of the election, and your views, may finally be about to receive the attention it deserves, or too much attention, or not enough. If you’re game, you should plan to attend Secret Science Club at the Bell House, 149 7th Street, between 2nd and 3rd Avenues, in Gowanus. This edition of SSC will feature Tyler Volk, Associate Professor of Biology and Director of the NYU Environmental Studies Program, whose latest book is CO2 Rising: The World’s Greatest Environmental Challenge. Tyler is also a guitarist and vocalist for The Amygdaloids.
While learning about such abstruse matters as why the CO2 you exhale doesn’t add to the earth’s burden of greenhouse gases, you can
get gassed on sensibly imbibe Bell House’s featured cocktail of the night, the “Hunk of Burning Love”. Admission is free-ee-ee!
