At the online meeting of Citizens' Climate Lobby Australia starting 7 pm on Tuesday 15 December 2020, I am pleased to announce that we have a guest speaker, Sustainability Consultant Wolfgang Spranz.
Wolfgang's talk will tell us the latest in the development of an Australian Hydrogen Economy.
Wolfgang assists businesses to continuously improve their sustainability targets, and has had a long affiliation with a wide range of community groups. He has a Master of Environmental Management from UNSW covering global warming, climate change, economics, social and environmental policy, energy management, and environmental law.
This is an online meeting. Please register with Zoom and go to zoom.us/j/7868786878 before 7 pm on Tuesday 15 December. From 7 pm, we discuss progress with raising awareness of the coming climate catastrophe and plan actions to mitigate the consequences of global warming.
The Sydney City Chapter of Citizens' Climate Lobby Australia usually meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month. In December it is the third Tuesday to avoid the Christmas break.
We introduce ourselves, and long-time members explain to newcomers how Citizens' Climate Lobby advocacy for action on climate change complements protest demonstrations.
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
- following well-thought-out strategies for meetings with community leaders, including politicians, especially to encourage consensus on the urgent need to stem carbon emissions.
You will have opportunities to have your say.
We need more hands on deck because the task is enormous. Let's avoid the global hot house! 1.5 degrees will be very difficult, 2 degrees will be a disaster, present Paris commitments or 3 degrees is a catastrophe, business as usual could give us 12 degrees of warming if we lose sub-tropical cloud cover.
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.
No pressure. Just come for a short amusing video if you don't feel in a political mood.
Hoping to see you there!
