The increasing concentration of carbon dioxide in our earth’s atmosphere has led many scientists to conclude that we hover dangerously close to a tipping point that could trigger abrupt climate change.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
Barack Obama’s recent election shows just how much ordinary people can accomplish when they organize at the grassroots level. Let’s keep the momentum going, and work together to reduce our carbon footprint right here in the 49th Ward!
Join your neighbors for food, drinks and lively conversation at the “GLOBAL WARMING CAFE,”Tuesday, November 11th, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m., at the No Exit Cafe, 6970 N. Glenwood (just steps from the Morse El).
Sponsored by the Eco-Justice Collaborative, the Global Warming Cafe will give those of us concerned about climate change an opportunity to talk about what global warming means to each of us–as individuals and as a community. You’ll hear about David Gershon’s Low Carbon Diet and the Chicago Cool Challenge–programs designed to help you lower your carbon footprint, while saving you money at home, work and on the road.
Starting today, we can take steps in our own lives that will immediately reduce carbon emissions. Then we can organize our neighbors, businesses, schools and communities of faith to advocate for policies that meaningfully reduce greenhouse gas emissions at the local, state and federal levels.
It’s time to get started. Let’s make the 49th Ward the COOLEST WARD in the city!
Admission is FREE but space is limited, so please RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the Eco-Justice Collaborative at 773-556-3417.
