"GO RENEWABLE WACO" PRESENTATION AT WACO CITY COUNCIL

We now have over 1000 signatures on our petition requesting that the City Council of Waco pledge to go 100% renewable by 2050.  The next step is our 10 minute Powerpoint presentation to the City Council on Feb. 20, where we will make our case for the importance of Waco taking the pledge.  At that time we need a huge crowd of supporters to help emphasize to the City the strength of the renewable energy movement.  Thus we fervently request that everyone plan now to attend Feb. 20 if possible.

The petition and organization endorsements are important, but vital is a meeting room filled with live supporters.  So please plan to attend, and invite everyone you know who supports the rapid growth of renewable energy.   Remember: the science is clear that we must convert our energy system completely to green energy by 2050 to avoid the most catastrophic impacts of climate change.

Below are the details for the FOP/C action on February 20th:
