Sam gave a compelling talk--simple in concept, calm and encouraging in tone-- but directly addressing this most critical challenge to humanity. He gave the audience three statistics to remember: (1) 2 degrees, (2) 41 percent and (3) four or five times. I will be explaining and addressing these numbers in subsequent blposts.
Also joining us was Sister Clare from St. Catherine's in Washington County. She has been featured on NPR, CNN, USA Today-- http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/08/02/nuns-monks-deny-kentucky-gas-pipeline/2611405/ as the nun who told the pipeline company that they could not survey their land. She told me of their organization New Pioneers for a Sustainable Future stressing in Washington County. http://newpioneersfsf.org/
Finally, ECTC was a marvelous partner with which to collaborate. We are looking forward to this continuing relationship with developing an Earth Fair in the Spring! More coming up on that!
