The next Humanities Washington “Think & Drink” is at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 23, at Naked City Brewery, 8564 Greenwood Ave. N. The topic is “Earth, Interrupted: Climate Change and Geo-engineering.”
Washington State is facing one of the worst droughts in its history, and the fire season could be unprecedented. Yet even with events like these happening with increasing frequency around the world, we still lack the political and social will to do much about them.
But there are some who say about this lack of action, “So what?” If technology has already worked so many wonders, why can’t it reduce some greenhouse emissions?
“Earth, Interrupted: Climate Change and Geo-engineering” is a moderated discussion hosted by Humanities Washington about the promise, problems, and ethical implications of using technology to intervene in the Earth’s natural systems.
Speakers: Lauren Hartzell Nichols, environmental specialist and professor of philosophy, and Thomas Ackerman, professor of atmospheric sciences at University of Washington. Moderated by Ashley Ahearn, environmental reporter at KUOW.

A program called Beers Made By Walking invites brewers and beer lovers to go on nature hikes together, so that the brewers can then create beers inspired by plants found on the trail. Hikes take place along the Mountains to Sound Greenway between Seattle and Snoqualmie Pass.
Two Greenwood breweries are taking part this summer: Naked City and Lantern Brewing.
Brewers attending hikes are challenged to create a unique, place-based beer that serves as a drinkable, landscape portrait of the trails that are walked. The resulting beers will be served at a special event in the Fall, in Seattle, and proceeds from the beer will benefit Mountains to Sound Greenway.
The first hike is from 12-3 p.m. this Saturday, June 13, at Seward Park, with Greenwood’s Naked City Brewery & Taphouse and Ghostfish Brewing Company at Seward Park. Greenwood’s Lantern Brewery will take part in a hike from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 15, at Little Bandera, along with Two Beers Brewing and Seattle Cider Company.
Hikes are free but space is limited. Online registration begins two weeks before each hike.

Humanities Washington hosts the next “Think & Drink,” in collaboration with ACT Theatre, at Naked City Brewery, 8564 Greenwood Ave. N. at 7 p.m. on Monday, June 8. The topic is “Unveiled: Feminism, Orientalism, and Perceptions of the Middle East.”
From dramatic events like the attempted murder of Malala Yousafzai to the everyday wearing of the hijab in many parts of the Middle East, the lens through which the West views Middle Eastern women is often focused on their oppression—either real or perceived. How accurate is this lens? Where do our views of the Middle East come from? And what does modern Middle Eastern feminism look like?
“Unveiled” is presented in collaboration with ACT Theatre’s production of Threesome, a play featuring two Egyptian Americans attempting to solve their relationship issues, and touching on issues of sexism, possession, and liberation. The Think & Drink event will feature award-winning playwright of Threesome Yussef El Guindi and professor of Middle Eastern Studies and Comparative Religion at The Evergreen State College Sarah Eltantawi. The discussion will be moderated by Zaki Barak Hamid, program director at Humanities Washington and Middle Eastern film instructor at Edmonds Community College.

Humanities Washington is presenting a special Think & Drink event called “You Mad Bro?: Race and Diversity Issues in Sports” with former University of Washington basketball star Donald Watts and sociology professor Eric Davis at 7 p.m. on Monday, April 27, at Naked City Brewery, 8564 Greenwood Ave. N.
From the comments of Donald Sterling to the NCAA making huge profits from unpaid athletes, issues of race in sports have been rising to the surface of our national conversation. How should we address racial issues in sports as fans, players, organizations, and as a society? What’s it like to be a black college athlete? Do modern American sports exploit minority athletes, or do they provide a path to personal empowerment?
Watts and Davis will join moderator Tonya Mosley, a journalist with Al Jazeera, The Huffington Post, and KUOW, to discuss the wide spectrum of race in sports both on and off the field.
The event is free and open to all.
