TKC MUST READ!!! KANSAS CITY CLIMATE ACTION PLAYBOOK SAVES THE PLANET?!?
Given that we're enjoying a balmy 50-degree weather streak before Christmas, this quick note from our environmentalist pals is worthy of consideration.
To wit . . .
THE KANSAS CITY "CLIMATE ACTION PLAYBOOK" MANDATES EXTENSIVE CHANGES ACROSS THE METRO AND LOCAL ACTIVISTS ARE MOTIVATED TO PUSH THEIR INITIATIVE FORWARD!!!
Think of it as Kansas City's Green New Deal.
Local cycling activists argue: "The climate crisis requires all of us to pitch in and do more now. BikeWalkKC is ready to work."
Here's the word according to their latest update:
"BikeWalkKC has sought to raise awareness around the shortcomings and opportunities the KC metro faces with regards to climate change. In addition to the release of our second policy brief on the intersection of the environment and transportation, we also participated in the climate strike organized by Sunrise Movement KC. We took both steps in the hope that our leaders will begin to realize the gravity of the situation and what they need to do about it.
"Earlier this week, Climate Action KC rolled out their Climate Action Playbook. The playbook takes some major cues from Paul Hawken’s Drawdown, which posits that “available technologies and processes, when fully developed, can reverse current climate trends, while creating more prosperous, healthy and resilient communities.” The playbook works to break those elements down in a way that is more fitting for a region like Kansas City."
