August 12 Conservation Update
- Trees are the answer... Call if you want to take part in
planning and ultimately planting trees in West Dallas. We are
forming a committee. We can especially use a landscape architect.
Call Chris at 972 239-5878.
- Our members of Congress are on their August break. Call your Congress people to tell them you see Climate Change as an existential threat that they must address. Or send your message through Sierra Club at https://addup.sierraclub.org/campaigns/support-a-green-new-deal?promoid=7010Z000002799xQAA
- Frustrated by traffic and pollution? NTCOG plans transportion, and they invite your online input here through August 28: https://www.nctcog.org/trans/involve/meetings Do more roads solve traffic problems or create them? Are thirty-year-old plans for the diesel Cotton Belt commuter train still sensible?
- What is your city doing about Climate Change? Ask your mayor and other leaders to commit to 100% renewable energy. If, like Dallas, your city is already on track to accomplish that, thank them and help them get the credit they are due on Sierra Club's list of cities that are Ready for 100. See https://addup.sierraclub.org/campaigns/readyfor100-percent-clean-energy?promoid=7010Z000002799xQAA
- Climate Change walking tours for downtown Dallas are planned for September, including a special one for the First UU Church youth group. See https://www.eventbrite.com/e/climate-change-walk-through-downtown-dallas-tickets-60854771259
