Great Decisions is America's largest discussion program
on world affairs.
Hello <<First Name>>,
On Tuesday, January 28th, at 11:45 a.m. at the Durango Public Library, our first discussion for 2020 will be “Climate Change and the Global Order.” Facilitator Guinn Unger will present background materials and a film by the Foreign Policy Association, and lead participants in a discussion of the issues.
Climate change has become one of the defining issues of our time. As much of the world bands together to come up with a plan, the U.S. remains the notable holdout. What is the rest of the world doing to combat climate change? What impact will the effects of climate change have on global geopolitics?
Guinn grew up as an Army brat and lived in many different places. He graduated from Frankfurt American High School in Frankfurt, Germany, then attended Rice University in Houston, graduating with a degree in Electrical Engineering. Guinn worked for McDonnell Douglas at the NASA Johnson Space Center on the space shuttle design team. He also worked as a computer software developer, computer consultant, and small business owner.
He and his wife purchased their house in Forest Lakes in January of 2013. Guinn got involved with the ColoradoCare Amendment 69 campaign in 2016, and served as the regional coordinator for southwest Colorado. He served as co-chair for the Health Care and Senior Issues committee of Indivisible Durango. He was also elected to the Board of Directors for the La Plata Electric Association (LPEA) in 2017, and ran (unsuccessfully) for the Colorado state Senate District 6 seat in 2018.
Join the discussion.
We encourage you to attend and bring a brown bag lunch. We may have a few 2020 Great Decision briefing books available for $25 each.
