Never doubt the power of speaking up to make a difference in the world. In 2015, I attended a Park City Council meeting where the council was voting to set a goal of net zero carbon emissions for municipal operations by 2022 and citywide by 2032. A group of us spoke up in support of the resolution, and it passed. At the time, it was North America’s most ambitious community-wide climate goal. A year later, they invited other communities to join. Salt Lake, Moab and others followed. This is already beginning to radically change our grid in the state of Utah, and the energy landscape of the West. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Tomorrow, they are meeting once again to consider accelerating the timeline by two years to achieve the net zero goal by 2030, and if you’re local to Park City, I’m inviting you to attend the meeting, speak up to support the initiative (there will be time for public comment) and to offer my support! We’re seeing the devastating effects of climate change and anything we can do to accelerate a transition to 100% renewable will help avoid catastrophic outcomes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀When: Thursday, November 29, 2018 between 6-7 pmWhere: City Council Chambers, 445 Marsac Ave., Park City, Utah 84060 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀I wish I could make it! Let me know if you need any info or support to help facilitate your attendance. Huge thanks to @parkcitygovt for setting this example and to all the climate activists who have helped make this happen! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Photo: @louisarevalo
