    At the ANthropocene Institute we like donating to good orgs confronting climate change.

    But we only sent $250 because you guys are not intellectually honest.

    Still 90% right..

    Your entire site doesn’t mention “nuclear power”. You must be aware that its climate safe and health safe. Or believe otherwise. But in either case you self censor and cannot discuss it. That’s sad.

    You don’t even have the word “nuclear” on your site.

    That proves you are more anti-nuclear than pro-climate.

    I’m creating a national directory of businesses that have done renewable projects so consumers can patronize them. You can see what stage it’s at at www.buyrenewablesnow.com. I’m not satisfied with the Michigan list and was hoping your members could inform me about businesses in Michigan that should be on the list but aren’t.

    This website is devoted to reducing global warming/climate change by informing consumers in the U.S., whether travelling or at home, where they might spend their money to reward businesses that have done (or whose landlords have done) renewable energy projects to make, store, etc., their products and services.

    I’m researching state legislative activity on global warming/climate change; I’m wondering if Michigan’s House or Senate has proposed legislation on these topics in the last two years. My initial search of the state legislature’s web site hasn’t shown much. Thank you!

    My name is Amber Todoroff and I’m a policy associate at the Environmental and Energy Study Institute. EESI is a nonpartisan, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting sustainable societies.


    EESI holds a few dozen Congressional briefings a year on a variety of environmental/clean energy topics. We are currently focusing on regional coastal resilience and nature-based resilient solutions.


    Our next briefing will cover the Great Lakes. It will be held on February 13th and feature experts who will speak on tribal, agricultural, wildland, and urban adaptation efforts. The briefing will be in Washington, DC, but can be livestreamed from anywhere.


    I thought I’d put it on your radar in case someone from MiCAN would be interested in watching/attending: https://www.eesi.org/briefings/view/021320greatlakes

    Dear Friends,


    In 1993 the United Nations General Assembly celebrated the first designated World Water Day. It is a means of “focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and advocacy for the sustainable management of freshwater resources”. (un.org)


    In the past, West Michigan has been under-represented. To this end, a small group of grass-root organizers are organizing an event over the weekend of March 20,21, and of course on World Water Day itself. These events are spread across Muskegon and Ottawa counties.


    The goals of this celebration include

    • Celebrate the Great Lakes and the important part they play in the larger scope of the World’s water supply.

    • Bring awareness that we, as global citizens, have an awesome responsibility as stewards of the water.


    We are inviting spiritual leaders, community groups, and others to come together Sunday March 22nd between the hours of 1:00 and 4:00 in Grand Haven to “Speak for the Water”. We are calling all those who are interested and willing to offer a song, poem, teaching or prayer for the water and environment, to help meet our goals.


    We would like to add your voice to the list. Do you, your faith community, or organization, have a message of hope and protection of the planet and water to share? If not and it is possible, we are also asking for financial support for the event. We are taking donations through paypal by donating at lakeshorewp@gmail.com.

    Contact Shannon Donley to add your voice to ours for the water.

    Shannon’s contact information:616-304-2099 or e-mail lakeshorewp@gmail.com.

    Good afternoon,


    I grew up in Michigan. I now live in Arizona and I am a Phoenix public school teacher. I recently published a children’s book about helping the earth. My dad who still lives locally illustrated it. Do you ever work with local authors and illustrators?


    Here is a link to my book:

    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.

    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. publichealth.umich.edu/pursuit/2019posts/climate-matters-in-michigan.html

    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 http://www.nicholasginex.com/2018/04/15/everything-has-a-beginning-even-the-universe/


    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.

    Hello,

    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!

    Greetings,


    The League of Women Voters – Oakland Area is hosting an event that may be of interest to your members. We would be glad to welcome all. If possible, please promote this event on your website, facebook page, newsletter or other means.


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

    LWV-OA Program Committee


    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.
