Environmental Holiday Gathering Monday, December 15 at 7:00 pm.
The Delta Sierra Group is hosting a collaborative Environmental Holiday Gathering. Local environmental groups are coming together to share updates and challenges at a festive end-of-the year event.

There will be a panel to present a recap of each group's activities of 2014 and their upcoming projects. And we’re looking for ways to collaborate better in the future—so all ideas are welcome!

There will be some fun with a (non-competitive, but shared) trivia quiz.

And we’ll end the program with video of Yosemite in celebration of its 150th anniversary.

Music provided by Mom's Chili Boys.

Sierra Club Members and Guests: please note the change in date.
 
General Meeting Monday, January 26, 2015 7:00 pm - Gasland: Can you light your water on fire?
Always seeking cheaper ways to produce fossil fuels that we can voraciously consume, the oil and gas industry developed a way to get the gas out of the ground--a hydraulic drilling process called "fracking"-and suddenly America finds itself on the precipice of becoming an energy superpower. This movie is a compelling narrative on the largest domestic drilling campaign in modern history and an understanding of why drilling can never be made safe.
 
General Meeting Monday, February 23, 2015 7:00 pm - FIRE AND WATER, A Warming World, California’s Weather, and a Bipartisan Solution.
California has been hit hard by drought and wildfires in recent years. These events have left many Californians wondering, is this extreme weather linked to global warming, and what can we expect for the future? In this 'Fire and Water' event, scientist Dana Nuccitelli will discuss and answer questions about the latest scientific research into the possible links between climate change and California's wildfires and drought, and projections of their future changes in a warming world. The event will also include discussion of a proposed free market, bipartisan solution supported by many liberals and conservatives alike.

Speakers include Dana Nuccitelli, environmental scientist, risk assessor, and climate blogger for The Guardian and Skeptical Science - Getting Skeptical about Global Warming Skepticism. Skeptical Science

Also attending will be Harold Ferber, retired attorney, member of the Sacramento Chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby and sponsored by the Sacramento Chapter of the Citizens Climate Lobby. Citizens Climate Lobby
