PROGRAM: We Need It All – A Path to a Healthy Planet, with Bob Hendricks
Using Paul Hawken’s Drawdown and James Hansen’s latest climate models, Bob will provide perspective on what actions we can and should take to not only reverse our catastrophic increase in greenhouse gases but to restore a healthy climate with CO2 levels of 350 ppm or below. He will also review the Sierra Club’s new plans and current activities to fight climate change with justice and fairness, both the national plans and the work of Austin’s Climate Change Committee. Whether you have only a few minutes a week or several hours a week to contribute to this threat, perhaps the greatest ever facing mankind, find out how you can effectively contribute.
Bob Hendricks is co-chair of the Sierra Club’s Austin and State Climate Change Committees, member of the Executive Committee of the Austin Sierra Club, a Group Leader and Congressional Liaison for Citizens Climate Lobby, a member of 350 Austin’s steering Committee from its formation in 2016 until February, 2018, and an organizer for ATXEJ (environmental justice).
Consider biking, carpooling, or taking Cap Metro (http://www.capmetro.org/planner) to the meeting. Free parking is available after 6pm on San Jacinto and nearby streets.
