Hope to see you at Green Drinks this Thursday. RSVPs appreciated.
Green Drinks in July
Speaking Truth to Power - Part 1
July's featured speakers will be Curtis Michelson, former organizer of the Central Florida Earth Alliance and other local environmental campaigns.
Way back in 1993, the Central Florida Earth Alliance waged a campaign against the building of a coal-fired plant in Orlando. This was years before CO2 emissions and global warming, and the host of problems associated with coal mining, production and burning, became mainstream concerns. Central Florida has a long history of environmental activism and consciousness. Unfortunately, we have an even longer history of poor environmental stewardship. It is important to be aware of both of these histories and of the embedded institutional resistance that today's environmental campaigns, community organizing efforts, and innovative green businesses may encounter.
Also, as a warm up for Green Drinks, Curtis will be interviewed on Front Porch Radio, Wednesday at noon on WPRK 91.5 FM. Tune in or listen to the web cast http://wprkfm.com/?pa....
