For all You Teachers and Professors Out There...

A note from my colleague, Eban Goodstein, who is heroically organizing the National Teach In:

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

Swamp the Senate! (with invitations). This fall, engage your US Senators in dialogue about global warming at your college, university, high school, faith organization or other institution.

Invite the Senators to join you at a 90-minute “Signs of Change Teach-in”—we have a template for a session that is easy to organize, including sample invitations, here.  The Senators may not come, but you can insist that they send a representative from their office to talk with you. In DC and in Copenhagen, this is the year that the world decides the future. With the stakes this high, we owe young people a day of focused discussion, and the opportunity to join this critical national debate. Sign up today!

Find out more in the phone discussion following sustainability expert Hunter Lovins on The National Climate Seminar, our twice-monthly, half-hour discussion, at 3 PM Eastern on Wednesday, 10/21. Lovins will talk about why smart businesses are abandoning the Chamber of Commerce, and why they are making the case for climate action. After the Seminar, learn how you can help Swamp the Senate!

Send advance questions for Lovins to Joining us later in the term: the Honorable Edward Markey, Andy Revkin, David Orr and others. Click here for Seminar details.

Thanks for your ongoing work engaging students and citizens in the Senate debate.  Don’t forget to support the 350 International Day of Action, on October 24th.  And please register your own views with your US Senators, every week.

Professor Eban Goodstein,
Director National Teach-In on Global Warming Solutions

Of course, if we can be of assistance to any Bay Area Teach In's, please do drop us a line.
