The lead character in the story of carbon is a gas that is invisible and has no smell. The impacts of that gas are often thought to fall first on polar bears and people in faraway lands, in a time far into the future. While human creation of carbon pollution is believed to be hitting closer to home faster than many think, there is still a dearth of compelling narratives about how global warming affects the lives of average people. Join an evening with skilled storytellers for a look at the story of our times.
