    Hi Folks,


    I am so thankful for your work. I hope you have seen me retweeting and sharing your posts. I absolutely love your Good News Fridays.


    I am currently the pastor at Pilgrim Congregational UCC in St. Joseph and have been in the southwest Michigan area for about two years. During that time, I have done my level best to advocate for climate policy that radically changes our current path. I presented on climate change at our last Southwest Association meeting this past fall (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wMxW9A3h58E).


    Nationally, I belong to the United Church of Christ Council on Climate Justice. We are currently asking our national church to divest from fossil fuels and have entered into a partnership with Honor the Earth.


    I have been asked to see what initiatives with Line 5 might already be happening in Michigan. Being new (coming from Billings, Montana), I do not have the breadth of relationships I hope I might have several years out. So I am wondering if you could help me out with any initiatives or actions (annually or this year) planned for Line 5 resistance. We are seeking to bring our national profile to potential local work around Line 5. Would you be willing to share with me planned or potential actions? And how might I volunteer and make a path for relationship in southwest Michigan? To whom or what organizations should I reach out?


    Thanks for any help you can give me. Please feel free to call if that would be easier for you.


    Grace and peace,

    Rev. Mike Mulberry

    Hello MiCAN Team,


    My name is Julia Curtis and I am currently a junior at Grand Valley State University, majoring in both Environmental Sustainability Studies and Statistics.


    I am looking for either a summer internship, or an internship during this upcoming year, that is related to my majors. I came across your website and fell in love with what you guys do!


    If an internship is an option in the near future, please let me know because I would love to join your team.


    Thank you for your time,


    Julia Curtis

    I went to the road commission this morning to ask for an exception for a tree. I discovered that the road commission is out of touch with the public. They do not know what we want, and they do not care. They had the job of notifying all of those impacted by this Fixed Object Removal Project, and they failed. They say that they sent out post cards and put an ad in the paper. I, and all of my neighbors, did not receive a post card. Hell, they don’t even have my name correct in their planning records so how in the hell are they sure they sent me something?! And nobody reads the paper anymore, so that is no longer a reliable source of getting information out. Using the paper shows how out of touch they are.

    The tree that I was asking for an exception for sits in one of the lowest spots on Millington Road. This area is prone to flooding. I explained to them that having this healthy tree and it’s established root system in place helps keep the ground stable and prevents my driveway was from washing out.

    They completely ignored me. Instead stating that had I made the request 6 month ago, that they would have granted it. As this tree falls into the area where they were making exceptions. But now that they have the “plan” in place, that they can’t make an exception for me, because then it would open it up for others to ask for exceptions.

    Don’t we have the right as voting, tax paying, homeowners to request exceptions to things such as this? If they failed to notify me and other homeowners of a project that impacts me, shouldn’t they be willing to listen to us now?

    I asked them if when my driveway washes out because of their actions if I could bring them the repair bill, they laughed and again dismissed me.

    The board was dismissive and arrogant. One member actually said that we needed to hurry along so that they could get to another issue. They simply DO NOT CARE what we as homeowners want or what we think.

    I am disturbed by what I witnessed this morning.


    I need help stopping the slaughter of these trees that will impact our environment.

    I would like to point out the irony of the fact that the first sentence of your letter states “everywhere we look we see the heartbreaking impacts of climate change”, and yet here you are mailing out goodness knows how many letters 99.9% of which probably end up in the land fill.

    Hello,


    I am a student at Northwestern Michigan College and I am putting together a podcast for a research project for the end of the semester in my freshwater science class. My idea for my project was a podcast including indigenous people or people who work to protect treaty rights and conservation for the tribe. My project objective is to convey why people should care about conservation of water and sustainability. I was also going to add at the end small ways they could change their lifestyle to help improve and move towards restoration of the earth. If you are interested in participating or know anyone who would be interested, please let me know! I am planning on putting together a questionnaire and possibly meeting via zoom to be able to capture your input on this topic.


    If you know anyone who would be interested in participating let me know!


    Thank you!

    How are you doing? Well, I hope!

    Kids are generally a lot smarter (sometimes too smart…) than we think they are. Especially when it comes to leading greener, cleaner lives. They often know more about recycling, or about how eco friendly energy works than we do. It’s great to see.

    What are the reasons our kids can be so much better than adults at knowing how to be more eco-conscious?

    I’m someone who formerly worked in environmental health and now work as a writer. This subject is one that’s close to my heart, and it’d be great to share some hints and tips with you!

    I’d love to write an article for miclimateaction.org on the reasons why kids are better at being eco-conscious than adults. I was looking at https://www.miclimateaction.org/extinction_rebellion_rally_east_lansing while researching an article and it crossed my mind that your audience would welcome a blog post on this idea because we all need to get better at living greener, eco-friendly lives! All I’d ask for in return is a mention of a site I’ve worked on before within the resources.

    I’d also be happy to write around any other ideas you had too. Of course, the article will be tailored to your existing content and fully referenced for accuracy.

    Can I send a piece over for you to read?

    Sincere regards,

    Sara

    Hello, I am a PHEV owner/operator, engineer and green-tech supporter. Please consider the following scenario:


    Terminating Line 5 and prohibiting the construction of a replacement will cause the supply chain to move more fuel into the mid-west using tractor-trailers and railroads, which burn fuel. This is not a win for the Michigan Climate Action Network, because consumers will burn the same amount of fuel, while more fuel is going to be used to transport it to points-of-sales. Not only will it net burning more fuel, but this further reduces supply.


    The aggressive protest against carbon-based liquid-fuel infrastructure is not the way towards a better future. Consumers struggle to afford new technology as it is, so taking action to further increase fuel prices for consumers through banning construction of fuel infrastructure will be counter-productive.


    The railroad company will always have enough money to buy diesel for their trains, and truck drivers will always buy diesel for their trucks. It’s a business expense. Struggling consumers and home-owners who rely on home heating oil (which petroleum companies consider nearly interchangeable and often sell as diesel for off-road use, i.e., rail-road use) will have to compete businesses for oil, people could freeze in their homes if they can’t afford to keep up.


    Besides, if they don’t build it in your state, they’ll just build it somewhere else. Michigan Climate Action Network is basically lobbying to increase fuel prices for everybody. Please understand this perspective.


    Consumers will move to green technology as they can afford it, and as it becomes more practical.

    Hi!


    Could I write an article for your site about the tax advantages of hiring freelancers vs. full-time employees? While this option won’t work for all small businesses, I believe many more small business owners would consider this if they knew how financially advantageous it can be.


    What do you think? May I write this for you and send it your way?


    Thanks so much.

    Dear Michigan Climate Action Network


    I’m a professor in California, and I just finished a very foreboding video entitled “Climate Emergency: It’s dangerously close to being too late to act.”


    It is very much of the same mind as Extinction Rebellion and Greta Thunberg, and, indeed, Greta gets the last word.


    I hope you have a chance to take a look. Please feel free to use this in any way you wish or, if you might wish to have this delivered live, I would be most honored. I always wanted to visit Traverse City!

    Hi, I wanted to reach out and introduce us and our initiative.


    Earth Gives is an environmental nonprofit startup creating a new digital space for environmental and climate-focused nonprofits—to help them network with one another, with donors, sponsors, initiate fundraising, really to help move the needle nationally on environmental philanthropy.


    Right now, we’re registering several environmental nonprofits to participate in our inaugural giving day on October 7, 2021. We’re excited to share this opportunity with you! Registration for the giving day runs through Sept. 3, but the platform will exist as a permanent resource to help organizations supercharge their fundraising efforts.


    I’ll specify, because I’m often asked: this is not a monetary ask and there are no ongoing fees, just a small one-time registration fee to help cover our backend costs. We’re really trying to be the water that lifts all ships in this space.


    If you have any questions at all, feel free to give me a call. I encourage you to visit our website EarthGives.org for more information.


    Thanks and have a great weekend,

    David
