    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

    I’m would like to make another more substantial donation. But I’m a bit queered out by your anti-nuclear stance. That is so 1985.


    100% Renewable energy is a scam put on by the Frack Gas industry, that funds Stanford’s Precourt Energy institute (look it up!) and spends $1 billion per year on PR for RE. The oil majors push RE for a reason— it is half natural (frack) gas by the time it reaches a customer. Because of intermittency getting filled in by the “reliable” toxic greenhouse gas business.


    That’s why 100% clean energy is the right goal.

    To get there we need some new design nuclear power.

    It is also stupid to shut down existing nuclear but it won’t matter as much after new designs are running.


    We should not be arguing about the 1980’s designs for nuclear. There is lots of stuff we can do after half a century of tech. See http://TerrestrialEnergy.com, ThorCon Energy, Terrapower, ARC Nuclear, New brunswick, Elysium, UltraSafe Nuclear,

    And DeepIsolation.com for waste storage.


    20 years from now, all those wind farms will be converted to more valuable real estate. No one will still want them in their backyards anymore.


    China is going to build MSR nuclear reactors, clean and safe and cheap, and if the USA doesn’t… we will buy them from China.


    But is nuclear safe? http://GotNuclear.net

There are also “Future Tech!” ideas at the end of each section to develop better technologies and, overall, to make substantial progress on combating climate change.

    In a post on Facebook you refer to a 1% cap on rooftop solar in Michigan, but you do not explain at all what it is. There certainly is no law that says only 1% of homeowners can install solar collectors. Does it have to do with net metering, or what? You really need to explain this better when you post something like this and ask people to sign a petition. I did not sign it because it was so unclear to me what you are talking about. (My household makes all the electricity we use from solar, so please don’t misunderstand my sympathies here.)
