All Our Energy was a part of the recently extended hit family musical Endangered! at their CLIMATE TALKBACK SERIES, following the Sunday performances (3pm curtain, talk back began at 4:30pm) at the Davenport Theatre (354 West 45 Street)
THE ENDANGERED CLIMATE TALKBACK SERIES welcomed devoted environmental experts and activists to speak on the many aspects of climate change and related issues and concerns, including endangered species preservation, education and outreach, and sustainable solutions. This series speaks to the most current issues and thinking on climate change and its causes, habitat loss and species preservation, and the best strategies to educate the younger generation – including arts and entertainment vehicles such as Endangered! The Musical.
“With residents of Texas and Louisiana barely drying off from Hurricane Harvey, and Hurricane Irma buffeting the Caribbean and bearing down on the US, with historic wildfires in the western US and superstorms around the globe, there is no time to lose in discussing and illuminating the topic of global warming and climate disruption. The central message of Endangered! is about the importance for people of all ages of being aware of the changes taking place all around the world, the impact of those changes on both animals and humans, and the importance of caring for and celebrating all life on the planet,” said Endangered! book writer, Keni Fine.
The Long Beach Herald printed my letter… and since then another Category 5 hurricane devastated St Croix, USVI and Puerto Rico.
Climate change certainly is demanding our response. The answer is in you and me, in making it a priority, and acting together.
The New York State Energy and Research Development Authority (NYSERDA) is leading the development of offshore wind on behalf of the state. Throughout 2017, NYSERDA is conducting extensive stakeholder outreach and directing over twenty studies and surveys to ensure that offshore wind is developed responsibly. This work will culminate in the New York Offshore Wind Master Plan, to be released by the end of 2017.
As part of its public outreach, NYSERDA invites you to three public information meetings on Long Island this summer. These meetings will provide the public with an opportunity to learn about the components of the Master Plan along with informational exhibits, and an opportunity to ask questions about the plan. The meetings are 6:00-7:00 p.m. Presentation and Q&A, then 7:00-8:00 p.m. is open house each day at the following locations:
Monday, July 10
Long Island Association
300 Broadhollow Road, Melville, NY
Tuesday, July 11
Long Beach Public Library
111 West Park Avenue, Long Beach, NY
Wednesday, July 12
91 Hill Street, Southampton, NY
We hope you all can make at least one of these meetings.
We are so proud to announce our
Together We Shine: Community Solar Campaign Launch Event
No sun? No roof? No Rebates?… No Problem!!
Can we build a community solar project?
Can we put together people who couldn’t otherwise get solar, with their own solar panels somewhere else? We’re going to find out and do it!
In light of inaction to address climate change, and with the local change to off shore wind 7-10 years away, all of us must act together now to displace fossil fuels’ pollution, clean our communities, and spearhead the coming renewable energy economy that benefits everyone.
What a great turnout, at a beautiful location, during a historic moment at the Long Island Climate Resistance Summit! So many new friends and such an inspiring day!
A special THANK YOU goes out to our volunteers – Ann, Karen, Joanne, Gary, and Susan (pictured here with me) for helping make it such a success!! Thank you to all who attended, and to our partner organizations who made the day such a success. We met so many new people we know are ready to take action to fight climate change on Long Island.
Thanks to all who took part in our discussion and had so many great questions and answers at our Community Solar workshop.
We are definitely gearing up for a fun and meaningful time at the Long Beach People’s Climate March official sister event. Thanks to all who have stepped up to volunteer to make it a success.
All Our Energy invite you to join us and Sierra Club Beyond Coal, Long Island Progressive Coalition, Sane Energy Project, Interfaith Power and Light, NY Communities for Change and many more for the official People’s Climate March sister event in LONG BEACH on 4/29/17 at 10am.
