Meetings of Citizens' Climate Lobby are held at 2:30 pm on the second Sunday of each month in the Board Room of Oatley RSL, 23 Letitia St near Oatley Station. The Board Room is upstairs from the foyer, on your right as you enter, or take the lift to Level 2. Notices in the foyer say if there is any room change.
At 2:30 pm, we have the meeting to discuss progress with raising awareness of the coming climate catastrophe, and actions to mitigate the consequences of global warming.
I am pleased to announce that we have a guest speaker, Peter Maganov, Sustainability Manager Randwick Council, who will describe the latest global state of the environment and how Council deals with of waste, water and energy in a warming world.
During the meeting, we introduce ourselves, tell of any good news, and long-time members explain to newcomers how Citizens' Climate Lobby advocacy for action on climate change complements protest demonstrations.
You will have opportunities to have your say.
At 1:15 pm downstairs, straight ahead from the foyer, all are invited to a pre-meeting informal lunch. Look for the Citizens' Climate Lobby T-shirts.
Generally, we entertain, educate and support each other in raising public awareness about the seriousness and urgency of acting to find solutions to the climate disruption problem by
- proposing a brilliant method of pricing fossil fuels
- helping each other with writing letters to newspapers and to community leaders
- form well-thought-out strategies for meetings with community leaders, including politicians, especially to encourage consensus on the urgent need to stem carbon emissions.
Our meetings are interesting and enjoyable, even though the underlying motive is serious and the involvement of people at the "grass-roots" level has never been more important. Even 1.5 C of warming above pre-industrial levels will be very difficult. At present, the world average is 1.1 C and the Australian average is 1.4 C.
Hoping to see you there!
