OCA Annual Meeting: “Local Climate Action:  Keeping the Momentum Going”

Sunday, February 8, 2015, 4-6 PM

Elwha Klallam Heritage Center, 401 East 1st Street, Port Angeles

Join Olympic Climate Action (OCA) for its annual general-membership meeting.  OCA has numerous climate-action and education initiatives planned for 2015 and invites those interested in protecting our community from climate change to attend.  The program will include:

  • A review of OCA’s community-outreach activities in 2014;
  • A progress report on a local climate change vulnerability and adaptation study which will help local decision-makers better plan for our future;
  • An update on the increase in local fossil fuel transport and the risks posed to our community;
  • A State Citizens’ Initiative for a revenue-neutral carbon tax that would reduce Sales and B&O taxes and provide a tax rebate for low-income families;
  • An initiative to jump-start home energy-retrofit investments in our local community;
  • Presentations from other community groups working on climate issues;
  • A poll of member interests; and
  • Inspiration from Bill Moyers and Company.

A buffet of locally-produced specialties will be served, and there will be a drawing for door prizes, including:

  • An Energy-Star© 19” HDTV
  • “Fate of the World: Tipping Point”—a PC strategy game that simulates the real social and environmental impact of global climate change over the next 200 years — “It’s all real, and it’s scary.”

OCA activist Ed Chadd says, “Let’s help make 2015 the year when the world finally gets serious about climate change.  There’s little time to lose, and we all have a stake in this.  Come join us!”

RSVP not required but would be much appreciated.
