Waco Friends of the Climate August Meeting
Waco Friends of the Climate will hold its August business meeting and film on Tuesday, August 23, at the South Waco Library (2737 S. 18th St) large meeting room. Business starts at 6:00 pm and the film starts around 6:30pm.
Business discussion will include the upcoming yard sign program and the tree seedling distribution.
The documentary: "Kiss the Ground" is the visually stunning story of regenerative agriculture and its role in combating the climate crisis. The documentary also presents the carbon cycle and steps individuals may take to lighten their carbon footprints. The story is narrated by Woody Harrelson. A portion of the film discusses the role of cattle grazing to increase soil health. I disagree with this segment when they discuss "humane killing" of the cattle—arguably a cruel oxymoron. Although we may disagree some, the film has much to teach us overall, and the presentation is highly enjoyable.
Non alcoholic beverages and vegan snacks will be provided. If you are able to bring a vegan snack, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
As per current CDC recommendations, masks should be worn except when eating or drinking (McLennan County is a high risk county). If CDC guidelines change, our policy will be modified.
Please text 254 744 1682 if transportation to the meeting is needed.
With the pending Inflation Reduction Act, we hope to see the 1st comprehensive climate action policy in the US in decades. With this positive event, we must continue to strive at the city level-- keeping global temp increase below 1.5°C is still a massive challenge and will require action at all levels. Please be certain to join us and bring someone with you.
