Subject: [RunningOnEmpty] Partnering with Climate Activists


>Yesterday I went to a meeting which was called to start a local action
>group in affiliation with the Massachusetts Climate Action Network
>(http://www.massclimateaction.org), which is affiliated with the
>international Climate Action Network (CAN -
>http://www.climatenetwork.org).
>
>This is a very dynamic network which shares an important goal with those
>of us who are concerned about the energy crisis - reducing consumption
>of fossil fuels.  See their web page on personal steps to reducing
>global warming at http://www.massclimateaction.org/action.htm.
>
>Of particular interest is CAN's campaign to get towns to develop action
>plans to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.  I couldn't find details
>online, but they're working with many towns throughout the USA to 1)
>inventory local GHG emissions, and 2) develop plans to reduce them.
>They have access to funds to hire interns for the inventory part of the
>job.
>
>Those who are so inclined might want to search out your state or local
>CAN-affiliated group to explore possible areas for collaboration.  While
>their web sites don't mention the energy crisis, most of the people at
>the meeting I went to yesterday were quite aware of it.
>
>Some of us tend to forget, but the depletion of fossil fuels does have
>another dark side besides the looming energy crisis, and it's climate
>change.  The effects of either by itself will be bad enough, but
>together they will be devastating.  We need to connect up with climate
>activists and start sharing information and action plans.
