Drawdown: Getting into Action

Baltimore 350 has been running an exciting workshop where we learned about the latest research from Project Drawdown on reversing global warming. The last of four working sessions is scheduled for Saturday, November 9 from 2-4:30 PM EST.

On December 3 (Tuesday evening), we'll share the climate solutions we've developed and celebrate our hard work.

Baltimore 350 invites you to an engaging discussion of Baltimore-based solutions to the climate crisis. Inspired by the solutions presented in Project Drawdown and the Pachama Alliance, this event will showcase projects to improve our local environment and economy that will:
  • Save money by using community solar
  • Reduce waste though composting and effective food management
  • Eliminate single-use plastics, improve education opportunnities, and more!

Climate Crisis Town Hall

Congressman Dutch Ruppersberger and Congressman John Sarbanes hosted on March 28 a town hall at the Towson library on the climate crisis.

The audience of more than 100 were able to question the two congressmen and determine their viewpoints and their work to address the climate crisis. Both have signed on to the New Green Deal Resolution.
[No, Ruppersberger wasn't trying to hit Sarbanes; they seemed to agree on what needs to be done.]

Baltimore350 visited Senator Chris Van Hollen's February 8, to drop off petitions and to obtain the support of the senator for the Green New Deal. For background info, see: [Sunrise-Green New Deal]

Lobby Night

A group of Baltimore 350's members participated in the Lobby Night at Annapolis, sponsored by the Maryland Chapter of the Sierra Club. Our members met with the staff of Senator Chris West (District 42), and delegates Steve Lafferty (42A), Michele Guyton (42B), and Nino Mangione (42B). We applaud the stands taken by West, Lafferty, and Guyton who were generally in alignment with the four bills Sierra Club highlighted that evening.
