PRESENTATION TO THE SUSTAINABLE RESOURCE PRACTICES ADVISORY BOARD

Date: Thursday, August 9, 2018
Time: Arrive at 3:45 pm (presentation at 4:00 pm)
Venue: Conference room, 3rd floor, Waco City Hall, 300 Austin Ave., Waco, Tx 76701



This is the next step in our movement to persuade the City of Waco to go 100% renewable by 2050.  This presentation is as important as our Feb. 20 presentation to the Waco City Council.  This board is responsible for recommendations to the Council on matters of renewable energy, conservation, EVs, etc.


We have 25 minutes to make our case to this Board.  This presentation is an extremely important step in our Go Renewable Waco campaign.  We need to fill the conference room to reinforce our message of Feb. 20--and we need a crowd of the same size.  By filling the room we demonstrate to the Board our commitment to action on climate change now.


Please wear your new green FOP/C T-shirt, or other green T-shirt for uniformity.


Afterwards, we will all gather for dinner and celebration.

Action At Ted Cruz Appearance At George's


Ted Cruz appeared at George’s in Waco in the afternoon on July 3rd.  This was a rare opportunity to get in his face, and several FOP members took advantage of the opportunity.  There was no police harassment.  This successful action reminded Cruz that there is opposition in Waco and it will be heard.

How to Let Go of the World & Love All the Things
Climate Can’t Change

Tuesday, July 17th
Poppa Rollo's Pizza
703 N. Valley Mills Dr.
Waco
6 PM:  Free Pizza & Business, followed by film & discussion

This film is a powerful & visually stunning documentary by academy award nominated director Josh Fox.  It follows his acclaimed Gasland documentaries.  Fox travels to twelve different countries and covers the dire impact of climate change in each of them.  The film acknowledges that it may be too late to stop some of the worst consequences and asks, what is it that climate change can’t destroy? What is so deep within us that no calamity can take it away?

Part One of the film (@ 60 minutes) will be shown.


Business items preceding the film include Go Renewable Waco, the September art show, and new T-shirts.
