GREEN FRIDAY

Green Fridays, sponsored by the Sierra Club Northern Alameda County Group, is a series of public presentations by expert speakers on the most important environmental issues of our times. Meetings are held at the Bay Chapter Office, 2530 San Pablo Avenue (one block south of Dwight Way) in Berkeley on the second Friday of each month. Note new format: no potlucks. Doors open at 7:00 p.m.; beverages and snacks will be served. The presentation begins at 7:30 p.m. Suggested donation is $3.00. For more information, contact Ken Peterson at: [masked] or Joanne Drabek at [masked]-4614.

The March 14th presentation is entitled "Fracking in California: Can We Still Be a Climate Leader!". The presenters will be members of the Sierra Club Bay Chapter's "Don't Frack California" team. The team will explain what “fracking and acidizing” is and why the oil industry's attempt to greatly expand its efforts in California poses major risks to the water we drink, the air we breathe, our climate, and our future, driving California backwards instead of forwards as the country's climate leader. They will discuss efforts to stop fracking including state legislation, local initiatives, rallies, demonstrations, and bird-dogging Gov. Brown.

    I'm going to grab dinner before hand and invite any of you to join me at Anchalee Thai, around the corner from the Sierra Club, at 1096 Dwight Way. I'll be there around 5:45. Any takers?

    Hello!

    I just realized that I live very close to this meeting location, and I would like to give a positive R.S.V.P. However, I am working until 6:00 p.m., then am "on call" until 8:00 p.m. Should I find myself back in Berkeley by 7:00 p.m., am wondering if I may just show up at the meeting.

    Thanks for your consideration.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
