SALT LAKE CITY — James Hansen (Sixty Minutes interview), one of the world’s leading scientists studying climate change, will speak at a rally in support of Tim DeChristopher on Tuesday, April 28, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Salt Lake City library plaza.(map)

The event is built around DeChristopher’s arraignment at 11:45 a.m. at the Frank E. Moss Courthouse in Salt Lake City. The University of Utah student is facing two felony charges for his nonviolent disruption of an illegitimate oil and gas lease auction of public land in Utah last December.

Even though a federal court and Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar rescinded the auction because of its illegitimacy, Brett Tolman, the United States attorney for Utah, has decided to charge DeChristopher with two felonies, which could mean up to 10 years in prison.

Schedule of the events with Hansen and DeChristopher:

Monday, 6 p.m.:          Hansen talks with Radioactive, KRCL’s public affairs program.

Monday, 7:30 p.m.:     Hansen will speak at U of U’s Social and Behavioral Science auditorium
