Climate change author leads Green Drinks discussion

Join the Triton College Sustainability Center for Green Drinks from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 2, in Room B-223 of the Student Center.

Green Drinks is an international network that encourages networking opportunities to discuss sustainability. This free and open to the public event will feature guest speaker Tom Stoner, a former energy entrepreneur who authored the book "Small Change, Big Gains: Reflections of an Energy Entrepreneur."

Stoner will discuss how climate change mitigation is possible and will result in a more prosperous pathway to a sustainable future, as he answers such questions as:

  • Is the very nature of business in conflict with the environment?
  • To address climate change, will the United States have to incur a massive public bailout to transform our energy economy?
  • What are the top three calls to action for environmentally conscious college graduates?

Stoner is also the founder of Project Butterfly (, a research organization dedicated to finding business solutions to climate change.

The event will have a cash bar for individuals 21 and over, and hors d'oeuvres will be served.
