Climate Change Awareness & Action

Comments

I thought your members might enjoy listening to Bill McKibben on Nori's Reversing Climate Change Podcast.
Alliance for a Green Economy invites everyone to support the Renewable Heat Now campaign tomorrow to advocate for #EnergyEfficiency & #RenewableHeatNow so that New York can transition off fossil fuels as soon as possible. Here are the details for offering social media support on October 17. Thank you! #ClimateEmergency
Transitioning to renewable energy can involve learning about new-to-you technologies. HeatSmart CNY (a collaboration between the CNY Regional Planning and Development Board, Alliance for a Green Economy, and community volunteers) is hosting an open house in Camillus on Sunday to help folks learn about cold climate air source heat pumps and other technologies to help transition our buildings off fossil fuels. Hope you’ll stop by for a tour! https://www.facebook.com/events/2211527445825470/
President Trump has a multitude of problems and one solution with a place in World History. Expanding deserts, illegal migration from south, and, USA the cause of serious CO2 build-up has a common self-funding solution! Nation to the south enter seeking jobs, a wall will but slow them entering the USA. (A concrete wall will see a mass sand build-up, steel open-door) Under UNFCCC COP3 100year rule USA in concert with Mexico could across the deserts where the proposed wall is to be built, a CO2 sink of known serious sequestration vegetation would seriously retard migration. Under UNFCCC COP3 100yr rule CO2 sequestration soil- soil-carbon say 200million hectares CO2 offset trade and the growing soils will actually see serious reversal of migration. Well planned the vegetation will reinstall historical rainfalls! Robert Vincin
