Today's picks for civic nerds

By Ezra Parter June 9, 2014

Yoram Bauman is a funny dude. And he's smart too.

For Today

Yoram Bauman: Climate Change Humor

Everybody knows global warming isn't real. Wait, what? Even FOX News admitted it's happening? Mind. Blown.

If you thought this joke was funny (thanks!) or want to learn more about the issue, you belong at Town Hall on Monday to hear Yoram Bauman's entertaining and educational insights into environmental dangers and political ecocide.

Bauman, in partnership with illustrator Grady Klein, recently released the second installment of his
Cartoon Introduction book series. The Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change follows in the humurous and informative footsteps of The Cartoon Introduction to Economics, and touches on both the history of climate change and potentially beneficial policy changes. 
Yoram Bauman: Climate Change Humor, Mon, June 9, 7:30 pm, Downstairs at Town Hall, 1119 8th Avenue, $5.

For Tuesday
June Greendrinks: Goodwill, a Fashion Show, and Snoqualmie Ice Cream!

Seattle Greendrinks, the local organization dedicated to preserving Northwest greenery, has teamed with Goodwill for June's iteration of their monthly social fundraising event.

The pair of organizations welcome those interested in touring Goodwill's new green job training and education center while sipping on beers from Fremont Brewing Co., sampling Chaco Canyon's organic menu, and cooling off with Snoqualmie Ice Cream.

The event will also include a showcase of Goodwill-inspired styles and a $5 suggested donation upon entry, which will go directly toward Greendrinks' continued efforts.

June Greendrinks, Tue, June 10, 5:30–9 pm, Seattle Goodwill, 700 Dearborn Place South, $5 suggested donation.

For Wednesday

Former Seattle Mayor Norman B. Rice has been selected as the 76th recipient of the Seattle-King County First Citizen Award, given annually to a prominent leader or unsung hero who has benefitted the city or county and have encouraged others to follow suit. 

Rice's impactful career in broadcasting, banking, academia, and politics will come to an end this year, when he retires from his current post as CEO and president of the Seattle Foundation. 

The black tie-optional cocktail reception and banquet begins at 6 pm at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel.
