Conservation

"To educate and enlist humanity to protect and restore the quality of the natural and human environment."

Start 2019 Right

  • The Lege is in session. You can get your info directly from the Lone Star Sierra Club staff in Austin by signing up for their email alerts: https://www.sierraclub.org/texas/lobby-team-resources . If you, like Dick and I, were unable to go to their legislative training in November you can study up on what to expect here: https://www.sierraclub.org/texas/lobby-team-resources . If that level of involvement floats your boat, please tell me. We might arrange to visit some of our state legislators.
  • Congress too. Sign the Sierra Club petition in favor of H.R. 1 "To expand Americans' access to the ballot box, reduce the influence of big money in politics, and strengthen ethics rules for public servants, and for other purposes." https://act.sierraclub.org/actions/National?actionId=AR0137187
  • Monday January 14, 9am, Dallas Quality of Life Committee briefing on the long-awaited 2018 Dallas Green House Gas Emissions Inventory. This meeting at City Hall is open to the public. An agenda for it has not yet been posted online, so I have no idea what else may be covered or when the briefing will really begin.
  • Sunday January 27 1-3, hear Dr. Robert Haley speak in the sanctuary of First Unitarian Church, 4015 Normandy Ave, on "How Climate Change Will Affect Our Health." His talk will be part of the church's Social Action Council annual meeting. Public is welcome. Contact the church if you have questions. https://www.dallasuu.org/
