    I and the League of Women Voters of the Lansing Area are trying to get the City of Lansing — Mayor and Council - to adopt a Climate Emergency Resolution, create a sustainability manager position, create a climate action plan, form an advisory environmental board, and appoint commissioners to the Lansing Board of Water and Light that have a utility and/or renewables/pro-sustainability background (2 will be appointed this year for a July 1 start) You put our Resolution in your “News” Can you help us promote these goals with the City of Lansing. I’ll be speaking at the Council meeting at 7 pm this coming Monday January 13 and hope to get some additional bodies to show up in support. Can you help?

    I just signed up to be at Grand Rapids tomorrow Friday. This will ask for 5-6 minutes at the mike to give an update on the Committee to Ban Fracking in Michigan. We submitted 271,000 voter signatures to the Secretary of State for a 2020 ballot initiative a year ago, and she returned them without canvassing or counting. Our initiative language would require state oil-gas regulators to protect climate, a task they do not even claim do under the current law, enacted in 1939. Also the initiative would ban horizontal fracking and its waste in the state. No other state statute or pending bill requires regulators to protect climate. We filed our brief in the Michigan Court of Appeals last month. Download it at http://letsbanfracking.lorg/lawsuit . I gave a similar talk at the Traverse City climate rally in September. Thank you.

    Hello MI Climate Action,

    I’m a student working on a new gamified way to make volunteers and supporters more engaged with any campaign (for free of course).

    Would you have any time to talk to me on Friday?

    Dear Colleagues,

    I work on the marketing and communications team in the University of Michigan School of Public Health. It’s good to meet you!

    We recently published online an article titled Climate Matters in Michigan: Pressing Realities for a State and a Region and wanted to pass it along in case you were interested in sharing it.

    It is a discussion among five colleagues about what climate change will mean for the state of Michigan’s environment and its people.

    You are more than welcome to repost this on your site, and we can provide images at different dimensions as needed

    Thanks so much, and please let me know if you have any questions.

    Dear people dedicated to eliminating Climate Change,

    IMPORTANT!! Millions of people around the world have organized rallies to fight Climate Change. Yet, they are IGNORANT of two of the greatest technological discoveries of our era that will eliminate the threat of Climate Change and poverty. These millions of people NEED to be informed by reading Section 3.0 of

    You need to help educate and inform people world-wide that there is a solution that has NOT been disclosed but kept secret by the military and aerospace corporations in the United States.

    Also read the CONCLUSIONS of the paper.

    Let me know how I may help your cause further.

    Sincerely, Nicholas

    Is any climate group in Michigan considering a petition drive to place a measure on the ballot? DTE is doing everything possible to deter customers from installing solar, etc., and the PSC won’t stop them. A ballot measure to establish “energy freedoms” would also help to drive pro-enviro turnout in 2020. I am a veteran of the 2014 Climate March in NYC and also an experienced leader of ballot proposal drives.

    I belong to the Huron Valley Indivisible group, a progressive grass roots organization. One of our concerns is climate change and the environment. We have approximately 300 members who are willing to call, write, and visit legislators to voice our concerns on many issues. We also write letters to the editors of local papers. Please contact me about how we can help. Thanks, Jeff

    My name is Nevaeh and I am a student at Grand Blanc West Middle School. I’m in 8th grade and I am doing a research project on environmental impacts caused by humans. Part of my research requires me to connect with and talk to a person who is knowledgeable about my topic, and I thought of you! Would answering a few of my questions be something you might consider either on the phone or via email. If so, I have listed my questions below:

    Do you personally believe global warming is causing the differences in our ecosystem/atmosphere?

    If you don’t believe global warming is happening, what do you believe is happening?

    What changes are you progressively seeing that worry you the most? Why?

    If there is one thing humans could do to solve this problem, what do you suggest?

    What do you think will happen if we do nothing?

    Is there anything else you think I should know or use in my research project?

    Thank you for your time!

    Below is some more information. Thank you for your consideration.

    Oil and Water Don’t Mix

    Tuesday, April 2, 7:00 to 8:30 PM

    Bloomfield Township Public Library

    1099 Lone Pine Rd (at Telegraph Rd), Bloomfield Township

    The League of Women Voters – Oakland Area will host Sean McBrearty, Coordinator, Oil and Water Don’t Mix. The event will be held at the Bloomfield Township Library Auditorium from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.

    Sean will speak about environmental concerns relating to the Enbridge Oil Company Line 5, the 655-mile-long pipeline which carries synthetic crude oil through Michigan. Of special concern is the damaged pipeline which has been submerged in the Straits of Mackinac since 1953 and is still in use today.

    Sean will also update the audience about the status of Governor Whitmer’s January 2, 2019 directive to Attorney General Nessel to investigate legislation passed during the lame duck session following the November election. The Governor’s directive authorizes investigation into whether the legislation, which approved construction of a Line 5 Tunnel under the Straits, complies with the state constitution.

    Finally, Sean will talk with the group about newly created volunteer opportunities with Clean Water Action in Oakland County.

    I am using the three-minute public comments portion of our Antrim County Commissioners monthly meetings to say various things to them about climate change. My first brief comments asked them to consider themselves — in every action they take — part of the solution rather than just bystanders in this challenge, truly an all-hands-on-deck situation. They meet twice a month, and I plan to address them at least once a month. I believe either by their rules of procedure or just tradition, they do not immediately respond. If they are motivated to act, there are things a county commission can do vis-a-vis climate change.If you think this is a good idea to do in other counties, even if you do not have an in-county organization that can do this, you can probably find in most (many?) counties (and cities?) an individual who is as concerned as I am, willing to do a little research (you could probably help there), and willing to stick his/her neck out slightly. All they (we) need to be is informative, reasonably articulate, and persistent. By the way, it looks like our local newspaper (The Antrim Review) is going to publish my comments as letters-to-the-editor. What do you think?

    I really want to volunteer for this, I was think on maybe do something like get some flyers and go to a mall and explain to people about climate change, because they don’t really know how bad the climate change is being right now. Also let them know what changes, like easy and changes that they might be able to do on their daily life to help.

    I am writing to encourage all Michiganders to contact Senator Stabenow (email Debbie: to ask her to support new amendments to the Natural Gas Act that will help landowners facing pipelines.

    These simple and reasonable amendments would make the FERC process fairer for landowners by addressing things like notice, conditioned certificates and property appraisals used for eminent domain condemnation.

    Please contact me to get a copy of the amendments or go to for more information about the amendments written by our friends at the Libertarian Niskanen Center (who, unlike conservatives captured by the oil and gas industry, are willing to stand up for property rights). Their lobbyist is meeting with Senator Stabenow shortly so time is of the essence.

    I am happy to jump on the phone to explain more and would love it if you could help spread the message or lead me to others in Michigan whom I can contact. We are based in NY and have members all over the country (OR, PA, VA, NJ, GA, SC, TX) fighting pipelines but no one in Michigan.

    I would deeply appreciate any help you could give and am happy to offer the same to you and your state when needed.

    In solidarity,

    I’m a student writer at the Washtenaw Voice, a student run newspaper at Washtenaw Community College in Ypsilanti, Michigan.

    I’m currently writing an article about the extreme cold we’ve experienced this winter, and how it is a result of climate change. I was hoping I could get in contact with someone this week from your organization to talk about the various effects of climate change that we’re already seeing, and what we can expect to see in the future.

    Hope to hear from you soon,
