Acting on Climate Concerns: starts Jan. 11 at Temple Beth David, Westwood, MA
Climate science is alarming; some call the potential for ecological calamity “the undoing of Creation.” Jewish values guide us to a new environmentalism informed by a need for an 80% reduction in fossil-fuel use. Such a goal is radical yet feasible with changes that are ethically just and economically sound. In this workshop-style course we will respectfully review actions we can take now to ameliorate climate change. We’ll also address exciting projects happening now. Coordinated by Fred Davis, efficient-lighting expert, a series of other top experts will advise on acting in three areas of the crisis:
Jan. 11: What is our responsibility as stewards of our congregational facility?
Jim Nail, President, Massachusetts Interfaith Power & Light; also Medfield resident
Vincent Maraventano, Executive Director, Mass. Interfaith Power & Light
Jan. 25: How can we significantly reduce the carbon footprint of our individual households (assessing opportunities for energy conservation and solar)?
Rachel White, Performance Manager at Byggmeister Design/Build; also former Meah instructor, vice-chair of BuildingEnergy15 Conference of Northeast Sustainable Energy Association
Haskell Werlin, Director of Business Development and Government Relations, Solar Design Associates
Feb. 1: What actions can we take in the greater community (carbon tax/fee, ethical investing)?
David Schreiber, David Schreiber, Progressive Asset Management Group/FWG
Rabbi Judy Weiss, Citizens’ Climate Lobby, Boston Chapter Co-leader
The task is great…but we are not free to abandon it.
Course co-sponsored by Boston Jewish Climate Action Network.
