Co-presented with TOWN HALL CENTER FOR CIVIC LIFE. Research scientist Michael Huesemann, author of Techno-Fix: Why Technology Won't Save Us or the Environment (New Society Press) calls into question the pervasive belief that technological innovation will enable us to continue our current lifestyle indefinitely and will prevent social, economic and environmental collapse. Drawing from examples from agriculture, the military and medicine, he argues that most technological solutions are ineffective&3151;and, in the presence of continued economic growth, modern technology does not promote sustainability, but hastens collapse. $5 tickets are available at the door starting at 6:30 p.m., or in advance via www.brownpapertickets.com (1-800-838-3006). Town Hall Seattle is at 1119 Eighth Avenue (at Seneca). Preferred seating for Town Hall members.
