Senator Rob Hogg's new book on climate change, America’s Climate Century, is now available. It is short (120 pages) and affordable ($10.95).  It is a fresh, concise, readable book about climate science, the real life consequences of climate change, doable solutions for sustainability, and how Americans can think about the issue and take action based on our values, our history, and our culture – to finally take the national climate action we so urgently need for our future.


Here are upcoming events where Senator Hogg will be speaking about his book:

Thursday, June 27 - Des Moines - The Book Store, 606 Locust Street, in downtown Des Moines, at noon.

Wednesday, July 10 - Cedar Rapids - Blue Strawberry, 118 Second Street SE, in downtown Cedar Rapids at 7 p.m. - the first meeting of a four-week series - Read, Discuss, Act - on climate change.  On the other dates, the series will be at Indian Creek Nature Center (July 17), Van Meter Industrial (July 24), and Coe College (July 31) - all at 7 p.m.  Check back soon for more details.
