reinhard
27:08
Just the last 20 seconds
reinhard
27:23
What can we do? Organize locally...
Howard Bernstein
27:30
Some localities already mobilized.. E.g., Boston area.
reinhard
27:34
ok
Jacob Rubel
28:33
She was answering someone’s earlier question about what is the best thing to do now? Which she said was to work with people in your community and educating them about the emergency.
brucepreville
28:47
Bruce - I’m seeking to build a collaborative of cities and counties so they can share transformative ideas for actions cities can take, beyond business-as-usual.
mfidelman
29:58
Oh great. Yet another gripe session. Bye.
michael delman
31:28
Folks - ignore the guy who left - he bailed after 13 minutes. We need people with staying power:)

Jacob Rubel
35:46
Frankly, that’s an impossible target. Internal combustion cars will still be on the road then and well beyond that. The other part that while, small, adds up is lawn care equipment (lawn mowers, snow blowers, etc.).
robin
36:47
Jacob, a government buy-back program for gas guzzlers could get them off the road. Improved mass transit could get them less on the road.
Jacob Rubel
37:28
People want to make a difference. Where can people buy renewable energy, make other household changes, such as swapping out natural gas equipment and heating.
michael delman
37:37
Not sure we need to opine yet - good ideas here (I’m sure we all have plenty) but I’m very interested to hear what she has to say.
brucepreville
37:44
Is Climate Mobilization intending to support signed-on cities/counties to collaborate to share learnings and discoveries with each other?
Charles Menefee
38:17
I work as a transportation planner in local government (Charlotte, NC). The decisions made by the city and regional government are using funds that not only ignore the climate emergency but influence more driving and sprawling development. I'm here because at my powerless position I feel as though I alone can't change this one little aspect.
Marina Mails
38:30
Yes- we are working on facilitating collaboration between cities/counties that have declared. Great point.
liz
39:38
https://www.greenenergyconsumers.org/ in Mass and RI… info on rebates when you buy electric cars, change how you power your home, etc.
steve jr
40:28
Sorry, I disagree strongly. I am working a lot for a carbon fee and dividend. For Citizen’s Climate Lobby.
Lance Rich
41:49
I agree we need to change our buying habits, starting with our electricity. Many people don't realize there are free solar programs in their state. If their home doesn't qualify for solar, then all de-regulated states offer 100% green energy suppliers for the purchase of electricity. If you live in the North East. Powersetter.com is the place to go to buy green energy. It's simple and every one can do this.
Bob Henschen
42:12
Will we get the outline of this presentation by email?
michael delman
42:20
Hi, Bob,
michael delman
42:27

Is there a search-tool where we can find out if there is already a group in my area?
kimberlydawn
54:03
Best ipcc stats/info to share?
robin
54:09
Logo emblazoned t-shirts & printed lit really help credibility.
Patrick Trombetta
54:10
a mentor program may help ... connect small groups of 2 to 4 people

seconding the mentor program idea, and (if not already available) an online directory of committed people sortable by location
sashakay
55:11
More grief counseling.

Can you link to the Chapters page? I can’t find it easily
Charles Menefee
55:34
Is there pre-designed graphics that can help with branding on sign-up sheets?
brucepreville
55:38
I’d like to connect my city and county, who have already declared a climate emergency, with other cities who have taken bold transformative steps at the city level.
Linda Walsh
55:55
Will there be evening sessions in Boston? I would want to go home in the burbs.
robin

Mary Kay Benson
56:29
We are going to need help for Butte County Board of Supervisors to Declare a Climate Emergency with a conservative majority 3-2 now, with 3 being climate change deniers. We met with one sitting supes, and she said now way with current supes. She gave us a lot of homework.
Patrick Trombetta
56:51
thank you for everything!!!
kathleenparo
57:04
Any information available around the demographics of each area affected most severely by climate change. Looking ofor info specifically central FL Vousia County,
Karl’s iPad
57:16
Training in Denver CO?... coincident with Extinction Rebellion training?
Alexandria McKinley
57:22
I'm not sure I have the time or capacity to LEAD a campaign. If I were to want to lend my media production abilities to the cause should I reach out to established campaigns?
reinhard
57:38
I looked through the website. Can't find the lookup-tool. Can you please share the link where I can lookup local groups?
joymcconnell
57:49
Try looking for SLCC which is already connecting cities who are working on climate. They probably need to up their game.
Charles Menefee
58:21
Metropolitan Planning Organizations are govermental bodies that should not be overlooked as an important place to urge change.
Jacob Rubel
58:30
I think giving people, based on their geographic location about best places to buy renewable energy, what other features around their house can be replaced to minimize personal household emissions.
Mike Heaney
58:44
Gotta have talking points that work with local government officials.
michael delman
58:57
Yep - make donations!

i’m on my town’s government climate committee. i could use support in communicating effectively with them. and social/emotional support in the challenges involved. need people to connect with.
Howard Bernstein
59:41
There's a faith based climate strike group on Facebook
kathleenparo
59:41
Any information available around the demographics of each area affected most severely by climate change. Looking ofor info specifically central FL Vousia County?
michael delman
59:43
Done
Mike Heaney
01:00:09
National talking points will turn off local officials. What does a climate emergency look like in LA, Hoken or whatever examples we think are replicable.
michael delman
01:00:12
Going to the Boston training!
Sandra Wheeler
01:00:24
I need, in addition to suggestions for one-on-ones, how can we dialogue with hostile government, community members.
Mike Heaney
01:00:32
Work with my Church.
andrew hartley
01:00:34
how to hook up with that faith-based effort?
Karl’s iPad
01:00:35
Next step: Up the ante, with Extinction Rebellion training & actions
Lance Rich
01:00:52
Youth are the ones most passionate and are leading this fight. Contacting high schools/middle schools and identifying passionate students and giving them a program of action has been very helpful in my area.
kimberlydawn
01:00:54
Next step is to reconsider Boston training. The slide show bullet points are very helpful
Patrick Trombetta
01:00:55
in order to start a local campaign is the 2 day training mandatory?
brucepreville
01:00:58
Develop next agenda to respond to above comments.
Joan Holt
01:01:02
I asked about support for work with my town’s committee. pianotroubadour@gmail.com
robin
01:01:02
Science input on most effective paths of actions?
Howard Bernstein
01:01:10
Local Climate Strike groups are a natural source of parnerships, participation, etc.
Charles Menefee
01:01:11
I am going to continue to be outspoken in my workplace about changing our processes.
joymcconnell
01:01:13
I already belong to three groups to begin this process. One of them has soarlized our UU congregation building.
Bob Henschen
01:01:19
Inventory my local groups and individuals to approach first.
Bindu
01:01:19
is there any collaboration between TCM and Extinction Rebellion?
michael delman
01:01:23
Clarify role of what TCM does and what it’s focus is NOT so people don’t feel disappointed if you’re not offering things like tips on where to get solar power. People aren’t clear so it’s good to set expectations early in the call.
brucepreville
01:01:26
Are you planning 2-day trainings on the West Coast?
kathleenparo
01:01:27
Connecting the local Sierra Club, Green Party, baptist churches and other groupss.
Joan Holt
01:02:00
Next step: read the materials. Breathe.
kathleenparo
01:02:03
Is the a Climate Mobilization Chapter in central FL?
reinhard
01:02:13
I will be ooking up if there is a local group around here already.
Howard Bernstein
01:02:16
Already working with Jewish Climate Action Network (JCAN), which is partnering with Boston area strike groups, Jewish congregations, other faith based groups.
robin
01:02:17
I want to find out more about the town hall agenda. I could hold monthly meetings in my community. I could also arrange to have a table at the local farmers market, but I'd need printed literature for that.
liz
01:02:18
agree that it could be clearer what climate mobilization DOES. It seems exciting… the urgency is appreciated…
joymcconnell
01:02:20
Yes! all working together.
Mike Heaney
01:02:23
What are best practices among big city TCM chapters?
kathleenparo
01:02:27
Can we get a lust of where Climate Mobilization chapyers are?
kathleenparo
01:02:31
list!
elizabethrice
01:02:37
Next step is to organize a community meeting in my town, noticing people that showed up for the climate strike on Sept 20th.
kathleenparo
01:02:39
Thank ou
Mary Kay Benson
01:02:41
Butte County - next steps, as individuals to #FlipTheSupes, and continue to meet with the sitting ones to get them on record, and maybe start bird-dogging them getting them on record with short videos.
robin
01:02:44
How do you start a chapter?
Marina Mails
01:02:47

I liked the call as it was. Really helped me feel sane in an insane world.
Sandra Wheeler
01:02:54
On Thursday, I’ll be going to green drinks with San Juan Citizens Alliance. I was disappointed that they didn’t get around to climate at the one meeting I went to. So I’ll try some one on ones with some attendees.
Patrick Trombetta
01:03:04
my next step is to review your slides, plan my contacts and start the monthly train I meetings
reinhard
01:03:12
The website needs to tell me immediately where the chapters are (the funnel is the most important thing). I looked on the website and couldn't find it within 5 minutes. That needs to be imporved.
robin
01:03:14
On whose website?
Linda Walsh
01:03:36
Thanks so much for doing this.
Howard Bernstein
01:03:43

01:04:31
Thank you!
Sandra Wheeler
01:04:35
You DID get to actual suggestions for specific strategies. Thank you so much. It’s what I’ve been looking for since 2016.
Tim Brainerd
01:05:06
gut tightness....not good at prosthletizing
Mike Heaney
01:05:21
Should meetings with local muni Sustainability dierectors be a goal? I think so, but most Philly TCMers do not.
