Make a difference in the challenge to confront global warming and prevent nuclear war and the development and use of nuclear weapons.
Tell President Obama and the US DOT to stop oil trains carrying diluted tar sands and fracked shale oil from the Bakken formation—both are more toxic, more explosive, and more carbon-intensive than conventional crude.
The carbon emissions generated by all participant and speaker travel as well as building energy used for the Friday-Sunday Climate Smart Southwest events will be offset by The Local Trust, a Tucson non-profit. Funds contributed by The Local Trust will be aggregated and used in partnership with the Tucson Audubon Society to sequester carbon in native tree planting and to help make solar hot water systems available on new Habitat for Humanity Tucson homes. In the process, The Local Trust estimates that 15 metric tons of carbon will be offset which will make the Climate Smart Southwest events carbon-neutral.
