Meeting To Oppose Tradinghouse Lake Gas Plant



DATE: Tuesday, May 10, 2016
TIME: 6:00 pm
VENUE: Manny's on the River, Mexican Restaurant, 1620 N. MLK, Waco
FOOD: Appetizers provided by hosts, entrée paid by attendees.

A meeting will be held with the goal of forming a coalition to stop the Tradinghouse Lake gas plant and persuade the City of Waco to utilize renewables for coming electricity requirements.

The meeting will be hosted by Alan Northcutt, Jere Locke of The Texas Drought Project, and Mary Landon Darden.  A featured speaker will be Chris Foster, City of Georgetown Manager of Resource Planning and Integration, who played a key role in Georgetown's decision last year to have 100% renewable energy in place by  2017.

The Waco Friends of Peace/Climate began the fight against the gas plant and now we hope to broaden the struggle and form a coalition of more citizens from the community to magnify our voices.  And Jere Locke brings experience to this fight from his work with a similar struggle in Austin.

Halting fossil fuel infrastructure is GROUND ZERO in the climate change battle, and Tradinghouse Lake is the infrastructure WE must stop.  We all understand that climate change is a planetary emergency.  Also, from the local standpoint, going to renewable energy to provide power would be very cost effective and would provide relief from ozone pollution.

Please attend Tuesday night and help us win this struggle
