Despite the IPCC’s dire report that we have twelve years to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 50%, we know that this consensus-generated report almost certainly underestimates how rapidly changes must occur. And since the release of the IPCC report in October, reports from other institutions support 350 Austin’s position that time is running out fast.
At this month’s meeting, 350 Austin co-founders Gil Starkey and Bobbie Tsukahara will present a status update on the climate crisis and the role that non-violent direct action (NVDA) needs to play in our campaigns beginning in 2019. As a member of the Board of Directors, Gil will also be updating us on the Board’s directive in responding to the climate crisis.
We will still find time to enjoy one another’s company, however, as we share holiday treats during the latter portion of our meeting.
Plan to arrive early as we have a lot of ground to cover and want to be sure we have time for merry munching!
Please bring holiday finger-foods to share, keeping in mind that we still do not have access to the church kitchen.
