Why do we do nothing?

Posted by on Oct 10, 2013 in | Comments Off on Why do we do nothing?

“In the face of overwhelming evidence on the need to take urgent action on climate change, why do we do nothing?”  Kamloops 350 invites the public to the Philosopher’s Café on Tuesday, October 15, when Dr. Penny Powers will address this topic.  The Council of Canadians hosts this Cafe monthly at The Smorgasbord Restaurant, 225 7th Avenue, starting at 7 pm. As the recent IPCC report confirms, climate change is already happening, and it’s caused by us.  Extreme weather events like the recent flooding in Calgary will become more common, as will the wildfires that swept Colorado, yet we hear surprisingly little about concrete actions being taken to reduce these impacts.

Kamloops 350 at May 5th Peace Walk

Posted by on Apr 20, 2012 in At Issue | 0 comments

May 5th is the next “Global Day of Action” for the global 350.org movement.  Connect the Dots is  a wake-up call, an invitation to connect the dots between climate change and extreme weather. Consequences of climate change are already being felt all over the planet, yet many people write them off as anomalies, and don’t make the connections between increasing tornadoes, drought, floods etc. and climate change.  We will educate, protest, create, document, and volunteer along with thousands of people around the world. On May 5th, we’ll be setting up a booth at the Farmer’s Market to talk about climate change, local effects and what we can do here to help.  Afterwards, we’re marching in the Walk for Peace, the Environment & Social Justice, which happens to be scheduled for that day as well.  Anyone wanting to show their...
