The next meeting of 350MA of Greater Lowell will be held Thursday, June 12 at the Christ Church United, located on 180 E. Merrimack St. Lowell, MA 01852. So if you are looking to get involved, your presence at the meeting would be greatly appreciated and welcomed. There were only four of us at yesterday morning’s meeting.
An important topic for the upcoming meeting will be divestment from fossil fuels at the state and local levels. The city of Lowell is not currently invested in any fossil fuels, so 350MA of Greater Lowell is hoping to build support for a bill that would ensure that future investments do not include fossil fuels. There is also a campaign to divest the entire state of Massachusetts from fossil fuels. You can read more about the proposed bill here: http://350ma.org/state-divestment/.
I thought I should also point out an important episode of the Cosmos with Neil DeGrasse Tyson. The episode was heavily laden with global climate change and the impact humans have made on the planet. An important feature was his explanation of the difference between weather and climate. You can watch the clip here:
