If you haven’t met Greta yet, here is a wonderful introduction with Trevor Noah. http://www.cc.com/video-clips/ed6ma7/the-daily-show-with-trevor-noah-greta-thunberg—inspiring-others-to-take-a-stand-against-climate-change—extended-interview
Take nine minutes to watch this and please participate in the Global Climate Strike that she has inspired. Please take the day off from work and from doing business of any kind on Friday, September 20th, to be part of a completely democratic movement demanding that all governments respond to the climate crisis now. Join us in Strafford gathering outside Barrett Hall from 7:30 AM to 9:30 AM on the 20th. (Please park behind Barrett Hall.) To read about other events that week and see more background and details click here.
The power of this strike will be in direct proportion to the disruption of everyday life that can be felt across the world, so every person who participates makes a major difference. This is one very meaningful and very effective step you can take.
If you are a Strafford neighbor and have trouble paying a bill because you take this day off you can apply to the United Church of Strafford Deacon’s Fund for help.
Please increase your support of all local businesses because they save an enormous amount of carbon and increase community resilience.
Please share this posting far and wide. Thank you!
