Invite: NYCFC Friday Oct 17th 6:30-9:30 PotLuck & Live Music with presentation by NYC Safe Energy Coalition
General Meeting October 17 2014
Peter Pasco will open the evening with song. Peter is equally wonderful on harmonica, guitar and keyboard!
Environmental Talk: NYCFC recently endorsed the formation of The New York City Safe Energy Coalition which evolved from the need to continue the energy and activism of the People’s Climate March. NYCSEC members will report on their progress to date including a representative from the NYC City Council speaking at Thursdays meeting on details on various energy bills going through committees.
NYCSEC’s meetings are held at the New York Environmental Law & Justice Project, 11 Park Place (Suite 701). 6:30PM: pot luck, meet and greet. 7 PM sharp the meeting starts. NYCSEC agreed to meet the first and third Thursday of each month. The first meeting included 28 folks ages 21 to over 70 and from a good cross section of NYC communities.
NYCFC members and all concerned citizens are welcome to participate in NYCSEC,
NYCSEC has three prongs of activism: 1. Close Indian Point, which is operating without a license, with over 100 health and safety exemptions. 2. Grow the renewable energy industry, which is currently only 40 megawatts, but could be thousands of MW. 3. Make NYC buildings more energy efficient. Buildings can be made to use 1/10 the energy. No one of these things will make the other two happen automatically, but working on all three together could make all three happen faster. Lobbying at the City Council, NYCSEC will seek an influence in legislative developments in City Hall, Albany and Washington, but start in our home court where laws and resolutions are in various stages of development on closing the Indian Point nuclear plants, divestment from carbon- and nuclear-based corporations, and promoting energy efficiency.
Open mike ends the evening… we look forward to Harve’s performance. Get ready to sing and have a good time!
