Birmingham Citizens’ Climate Education Chapter Organizational Meeting!

You’re invited to hear more about opportunities to volunteer with Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL)/Citizens’ Climate Education and see if you want to be a part of our “in progress” Birmingham chapter or just stay in touch. Please mark your calendar – Monday, Nov. 14, 5:30-7:30pm, at Vestavia Hills Library in the Forest’s Children’s Program Room.

On the second Saturday of each month, or soon after, CCL volunteers gather locally for a monthly call and meeting where we do three things: educate ourselves by listening to a guest speaker, celebrate our accomplishments, and take action. Groups that don’t meet on Saturday follow up and see or hear the recorded call later.

November’s international conference call’s guest speaker is Dr. Katharine Hayhoe:

November 14 Meeting Agenda:

* Plan to Take Action – Discuss:
1) requesting an editorial board meeting,
2) scheduling a Years of Living Dangerously viewing party in December, and 3) screening Leonardo DiCaprio’s “Before the Flood” ( Among many other things, #BeforetheFlooddiscusses the importance of putting a price on carbon.

* Celebrate what’s happened so far.

* Discuss options for our next meeting time and place.

* View/listen to climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe’s 45-minute Nov. 12th international call: Hear the calm and reassuring voice of an exceptionally effective climate change communicator who also happens to be an evangelical Christian.
