Sierra Club hosts global warming discussion Nov. 7

KELSEYVILLE – It’s time to get serious about preventing the catastrophic climate changes that will result if excessive greenhouse gas emissions continue to raise the planetary temperature. Although both its causes and their remedies are global in scope, that global solution has to be assembled piece by piece, one community and one individual at a time.

At the next Sierra Club Lake Group general meeting – which will take place at 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 7, in the Kelseyville High School Library, 5480 Main St. in Kelseyville – Carl Zichella, Western Renewable Projects Director for the national Sierra Club, will discuss the impacts of global warming on California and the West and explore the options for making the transition to a carbon-free economy.

Zichella, who has been a member of the Sierra Club staff for 21 years and was previously the director of the Club’s California-Nevada-Hawaii regional office, is one of 1,000 Americans trained by Vice President Al Gore to present the global warming slide show featured in “An Inconvenient Truth.”

Providing a local perspective on this planetary issue, Supervisor Denise Rushing, who has been involved with energy/global warming issues on a professional and personal basis since long before she thought of running for public office, will also give a presentation about Lake County's impressive solarization program and other efforts to move forward into a sustainable future.

Please join us to learn more about the most pressing environmental issue of our time, and find out how we can fight back – right here in Lake County.

The meeting is free and the public is invited. For more information call Victoria Brandon at 994-1931, or send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
