Conservation

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

Thanks Giving

November 15 Clean Food Forum: Learn where your food comes from and where agriculture is going. Hosted by Mighty Earth, 7 PM - 9 PM, Meadows Conference Center, 2900 Live Oak Street, Dallas, Texas 75204. Thank Shana Gallagher for lining up knowledgeable local farmers and food handlers for the discussion, and RSVP https://tinyurl.com/cleanfoodforum

When you are downtown and notice that Pioneer Plaza looks a bit spiffier, thank Lori Rackers for her work on It's My Park Day.

Thank Kirk Miller when you come to our General Meeting Novemer 14 for continuing to line up wonderful monthly programs and also for bringing the snacks (especially the Oreos). Kirk was a finalist for the Greensource DFW Volunteer award this year.

Thank the shopper who remembered to bring reusable shopping bags, and the checker who asked if you brought your bags.

Thank your representatives... city council, mayor, county commissioner, legislator, congressional rep, senators? Yeah, yeah. Think hard. Even if you deplored some of their work, is there something they did this year that helped the environment? For instance, my state senator and representative both voted for legislation that extended TERP (Texas Emissions Reduction Plan). You can look up how your legislators voted on SB 1731 (TERP extension is buried among lots of other stuff) at http://www.legis.state.tx.us/BillLookup/History.aspx?LegSess=85R&Bill=SB1731 .

And think of a few more. There is a growing number of people who are embracing ways to mitigate Climate Change. What are you doing?

The Air We Breathe

This documentary about coal, air pollution and asthma was produced here in Dallas. In it are the reasons recent closings coal powered plant closings are welcome, and the reasons we still need the EPA Clean Power Plan.
