We, all of us humans, are caught between a necessity and an impossibility. We know that we must stop using fossil fuels. But how? The political climate says that it is impossible. Compare the very real possibilities of the extent of climate destruction, and we see that almost all our most aggressive political leadership is simply tepid. Until we, each of us from our own places of responsibility, act to do what we each can do, our situation is bleak. Already the storm is upon us. But in this case, if we act, it may not be so bleak for our children.
What do we do?
1. We get informed. And keep informed. And see the need.
2. We meet so that we might learn from each other and work together.
3. We talk with people, personally, frankly and with respect.
4. We target important changes that can be made with the help of our influence and we support the implementation of that change.
Who are we?
We are all volunteers with a variety of backgrounds and skills.
We have a strong steering committee with open meetings.
We have other, more local meetings for planning of our conversations.
We are proud to live in Denver, a city that is already leading, with leadership that is creative and forward thinking.
