Join constitutional scholar Meg Mott for a lively discussion based on her October 6 First Wednesdays talk at the St. Johnsbury Athenaeum, which will be recorded and offered in advance of this event. Ask your questions of Meg and add to the conversation!

In the United States, all power is derived from the people. While this sounds noble in theory, can we expect the American public to have the wits and self-control to meet the demands of climate change? Constitutional scholar Meg Mott explores the paradox of self-governance when the natural foundations of life itself are changing.
