GREAT JOB on Waco Sustainability Board Revision COMMENTS
It was fantastic to hear the comments of seven Friends of the Climate read into the record. I want to thank each of you for your efforts, especially during this troubling time:
- Skip Londos
- Matt Helton (sorry if misspelled, difficult to understand the reader)
- Jack Bowers
- Harrison Ward
- David Achterhof
- William Matta
So where do we stand? We know that beginning in early 2018 we pushed the City to start work on decarbonization. But now it seems that they refuse to pick up the pace and end the climate silence. As several of us said: if you can't use the term climate change, you can't defeat it.
I assume the 2nd reading will happen in a couple of weeks and I will consider a strategy for us and be in touch. Kelly Palmer before the election told me she was concerned about the climate crisis. I don't know when her term starts, but I am now reaching out to her to see if we can get some help from her seat on the Council. But whether we see the immediate action we demand on this, we know our comments enter their consciousness and will yield eventual progress. Science and reality will be victorious.
