Holy rising sea levels, Batman, I've been accepted to attend the Climate Reality Leadership Corps training in Denver, CO!
The Climate Reality Project
is a non-profit organization founded by Vice President Al Gore. Part of their mission is to train as many people as possible to become boost the signal, engage the public, and drive change on climate policy. Best of all, CRP is providing this training for free
! The War on Climate Science just escalated
Climate Change awareness couldn't come at a more urgent time. The White House deleted all references to climate change from its website within moments of Trump's inaguration
. Then they moved to do the same
with the USDA, EPA, NASA, NOAA, hell even the National Parks Service for crying out loud!
If our own government is muzzeled, it becomes even more important for we the people
to take action and speak up. As a citizen, scientist, educator, and inhabitant of planet Earth, I figure I'd better get on it.What's in it for me
Your support will hep cover my travel expenses, including roundtrip airfare from Baltimore to Denver from March 1−5 , ground transportation, hotel in downtown Denver near the Convention Center, and meals.
By my math, I'm thinking $2000 should cover all of the expenses.What's in it for you
My undying gratitude at the very least, but I'd be happy to share with you what I've learned. If you have a group or a business that might benefit from the presentation, perhaps I can arrange a visit. Or maybe a Skype call to share with you what I've learned, or...well, we'll figure something out.Thanks!
Thank you so much for reading my message and for your support. If you have any questions, please ask! March will be here soon so the sooner I can get everything sorted, the better.
P.S. If you're a little short on cash yourself, I totally get it. You can help in a huge way by sharing this with your friends, family, or anyone who you might think could help a bloke out.
