EYC meeting Thursday 3/24

21 Mar

Environmental Youth Council is hosting an open meeting:
Juniper Market, 56 San Marco Avenue, St. Augustine, Fl. 32084;
Thursday, 24 March, 2016 at 6:30 PM.
At issue is whether EYC should take the lead in organizing an Action in
St. Augustine, Sunday,  May 14.
The purpose of the demonstration is to urge President Obama and other
world leaders to move away from fossil fuels before it is too late.
Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of St. Augustine, The Matanzas
RiverKeeper, Center for Biological Diversity have agreed to partner with us.

Please plan to attend this important meeting and invite all those you
feel would be interested.
Thank you.

“Scientists and economists have concluded that the fossil fuel industry
already has five times more carbon dioxide in their proven coal, oil and
gas reserves then we can safely burn and keep global warming below 2°C,
let alone the 1.5°C that many countries supported at the climate talks
in Paris last December. The science is simple: in order to prevent
catastrophe, we must keep fossil fuels in the ground.

Climate activists around the world are uniting under this “keep it in
the ground” banner to take on major new fossil fuel projects. This May,
the keep it in the ground movement is coming together under the “Break
Free” platform, ten days of major fossil fuel protests across the
planet, from coal mines in Germany to fracking wells in Colorado.”
