Comfortably Unaware: Book Discussion
Jan 27 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Join SanDiego350 for a revealing facilitated book discussion. In “Comfortably Unaware”, Dr. Richard Oppenlander tackles the crucial issue of global depletion as it relates to food choice.

Do you know the true cost of the food you eat every day? What resources were used and what was destroyed in order to get that food to your plate? What does the word sustainable really mean when applied to your food choices and how sustainable is that particular food to your own health?

From the intro: The intent of “Comfortably Unaware” is to provide an unbiased informational base upon which readers can, at the very least, be afforded the opportunity to increase their awareness of food choice as it affects their lives and the life of our planet…”.

Plant-based finger foods will be provided. Contact Louise of SD350’s Planet-Based Diet Team for more information: 619-991-3736 or louise.russell@sandiego350.org.

March for Real Climate Leadership
Feb 7 @ 3:00 am – 11:30 pm

Join SanDiego350 members and Californians from across the state as we gather in Oakland — Governor Brown’s hometown — to say that we need real climate leadership in the face of the drought.

Across the state wells are drying up, more than a dozen cities are in real danger of running out of water, and there’s no question it’s being made worse by climate change.

But instead of reining in the oil and gas industry and putting an end to incredibly dangerous and water-intensive practices like fracking, Governor Brown has been letting companies continue with business as usual.

We will ask that Governor Brown to put an end to fracking and other forms of extreme extraction in order to solidify his legacy as a climate leader. Furthermore, we are specifically asking him to place a moratorium on fracking and extreme extraction until California’s drought is over. We don’t have a drop to waste!

Join people from all corners of California this February in telling Governor Brown that if he won’t be a real climate leader, that if he won’t stand up to the fossil fuel industry, then we will. Because this is about our water, our health, and our California.

The March for Real Climate Leadership is part of coalition event with 350.org, other California 350 groups, Food & Water Watch, Center for Biological Diversity and other organizations from across the state.

Sign up link coming very soon!

We’ll be reserving one or more buses as needed to transport us up to the Bay Area. Tickets will likely be in the $30 range (subsidized) with some scholarships available for folks who want to come but can’t pay that much. The buses will likely leave in the very early morning hours and get back late at night.

Want to help us organize this trip? Contact Peg.
