Renewable Energy & Climate Change Meetup (July 26)

This will be the first meeting of the DC Renewable Energy & Climate Change group. We'll gather at
Java Green Cafe (
powered by wind energy!) to share our interests in the topics and discuss what we'd like to get out of the group. Currently, less than 8% of the energy the United States consumes comes from renewable energy, while over 85% comes from fossil fuels which produce significant carbon emissions. Most renewable energy sources produce little or zero carbon emissions.
Using renewable energy on a wide-scale would effectively solve the climate change crisis the Earth faces today. Let's explore how! The DC Renewable Energy & Climate Change Group will explore how we can make this leap possible, by:

  • Exploring ways for you to start using renewable energy and lower your "carbon footprint" today, regardless of your living arrangements

  • Participating in exclusive presentations by non-profit staffers at various renewable energy and climate change non-profits around DC

  • Going on organized field trips to places like wind farms, solar panel factories, and biofuel refineries

  • Promoting local community events related to renewable energy and climate change

  • Hanging out with other DC environmentalists at eco-friendly locations

Please, come join us ... and invite a friend, colleague or next door neighbor to come too!

    A good start toward achieving change, getting us motivated, working on an agenda for the group, determining a direction, etc.

    Variety of ideas, interests. Open communication among first-time meet-up-ers. Will later articulate clearer sense of purpose. This group may become others, given diversity of ideas.
