The COP 21 talks are going on right now but the petroleum industries still think they are people, and that they can get a pass. The people in Southern Illinois say no- enough of that- keep it in the hole! We invite everyone to join the Peace Coalition, SIU S.E.N.S.E. and S.A.F.E. in a vigil to express a unified vision for Action on Climate Change. We will bring our no frack banners; feel free to bring signs too!
As the United Nations International Climate Conference in Paris works to make progress in slowing human's headlong plunge into climate disaster, we want to remind the citizens of the United States that we are the world's largest economy, responsible for nearly 15% of global emissions, and critical in recognizing and planning for dramatic action to reverse global warming. A new "Space Race" to reduce emissions by converting to efficiency and clean energy would be a huge engine for jobs and improved living conditions in the U.S.
Sponsored by the Peace Coalition of Southern Illinois/FOR, SIU S.E.N.S.E. (Students Embracing Nature, Sustainability and the Environment) and S.A.F.E. (Southern Illinoisans Against Fracturing Our Environment). We all have different strategies, but we still share a vision for Action on Climate Change. Please bring signs related to climate change topics such as sustainable energy/hydraulic fracturing/divestment/
green jobs, etc.
