Our next LAD Meeting will be TONIGHT Wednesday, June 5, 7pm, Front Range Community College, Community Room.
We’ll be showing the 350.org film, “DO THE MATH”.
“We’re jumpstarting a new movement, and we need your help.
It’s simple math: we can emit 565 more gigatons of carbon dioxide and stay below 2°C of warming — anything more than that risks catastrophe for life on earth. The only problem? Burning the fossil fuel that corporations now have in their reserves would result in emitting 2,795 gigatons of carbon dioxide – five times the safe amount.
Fossil fuel companies are planning to burn it all — unless we rise up to stop them. In November 2012, Bill McKibben and 350.org hit the road to build a movement strong enough to change the terrifying math of the climate crisis. The Do the Math Tour was a massive success, with sold out shows in every corner of the country.
The tour is now over, but the campaign it launched is just getting started.”
After the film, we’ll make it LOCAL with a discussion with Deborah Cameron, from Longmont Power, about tangible ways folks can use less electricity and more renewable power right here at home. Deborah will also discuss several renewable power programs available for both business and residence use and take questions from the audience about wind and solar programs.
…so please join us! And please…bring a friend!
