Climate Change and my Mobility
Combatting and living with climate change is the theme of the 2019 general meetings of Sierra Sage, the South Orange County Group of the Sierra Club. On March 26 the specific topic will be “Climate Change & my Mobility”, where our speakers will offer practical methods to seriously reduce our individual carbon footprints caused by transportation.
You’ll learn to calculate your carbon emissions and mitigate CO2 released by air travel. You’ll acquire skills in reducing the amount of global warming gasses emitted by your current and future cars. Our speakers will also address what lies ahead in public transit as it applies to an affluent suburban area such as ours, i.e. autonomous vehicles, car and ride sharing. Of course, walking, hiking, and biking won’t be forgotten as they may be part of your program of becoming carbon neutral. Although climate change poses an existential threat to humanity you’ll leave the meeting eager and ready to join in the fight.
