ALL INCONVENIENT TRUTH IS LOCAL
Submitted by Jeff Buster on Wed, 06/28/2006 - 22:55.
Hello friends and colleagues in the Heights and beyond,
Maybe you have seen the movie (An Inconvenient Truth) or maybe not, but dated as it may seem, I took the “think globally/act locally” idea to heart. I called my mayor to urge him to sign the Mayor’s Climate Protection Agreement and act on it. The inconvenient truth is that we must all act. Sooner is better than later. As Gore points out, it is already later.
I am sending this good news to all of you so that you may celebrate this small victory with us and perhaps if you are not a Heights resident call your own mayor. All the info (and more) is in this link. http://gcbl.org/blog/marc-lefkowitz/cleveland-heights-signs-climate-agreement If you live in the Heights, or even if you don’t please feel free to email a congratulatory note to our mayor and keep an eye out for sign of sustainability around city hall and throughout the city as the mayor and council embark on what it means to reduce our carbon footprint.
If you are receiving this and wonder if your mayor has signed, you can go here to find out. http://www.stopglobalwarming.org/default.asp I suggest a courteous call of inquiry before launching a petition campaign, but if you need a petition mechanism, it is all right there. Stop global warming one municipality at a time.
Cleveland Heights pledges to be part of the solution. It’s refreshing.
Hope you are all enjoying a beautiful summer,
I (buster) rev'd the above email from Susan and I viewed Mr. Gore's power point - no it's an apple presentation - last week. The presentation closes with a list of hundreds of Cities and Towns in the USA which are independently endorsing the Kyoto Accord. Do you think Mr. Bush could speak on any topic with comparable specificity? If the Federal government won't support reducing carbon emissions, we can take action locally.
Contact your local politicians, please – we are way overdue…
