Recently on WYPR, Tom Pelton, on his weekly show (7:45 & 8:45 a.m. on Wednesdays), discussed the parallels of two critical issues - public health and the environment. The urgency, the need for our officials to act morally to work on these, etc. Tom: "...Our nation’s failure to prepare for the coronavirus pandemic has direct relevance to our inability to deal with an even bigger, long-term crisis: climate change. The same is true with many other cascading environmental threats..."
Project Drawdown is a global research organization that reviews, analyzes, and identifies the most viable climate solutions. With the help of Lore Rosenthal from Greenbelt Climate Action/Pachamama Alliance - Baltimore 350 held a workshop series this fall to explore local initiatives such as:
Promote aforestation (urban tree canopy)
Save money by using clean energy (community solar)
Reduce waste though composting and effective food management
Eliminate single-use plastics/Bioplastics
On December 3 (Tuesday evening), the group enjoyed a light dinner and shared the climate solutions they worked on.
