Earth Care & YUCCA are wishing all those living and with family up north and down south safety as fires rage on and grow. The newest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was just published earlier this month and the conclusions are clear; Fossil Fuels Must End To Prevent 'Unlivable World'. Check out this Guardian article about the IPCC report and recommendations. The IPCC, a team of the world's leading climate scientists and researchers from 195 countries, released a new report on mitigating and reducing the impacts of global climate change. At this point we are on a fast track to an unlivable world due to current policies that would double the maximum warming our planet can handle. The report outlines the only option forward -- an end to all investment in fossil fuels, a rapid transition to renewables, and equity in transition globally and locally! Our local governments (like our current state administration) want to continue to invest in fossil fuel infrastructure like blue hydrogen, but we need to invest in a just transition plan now! This Earth Day, we must act and invest locally and globally in climate and environmental justice! Join us for Earth Day week to take action and get involved! Join YUCCA this Friday, April 22 at 5:00 pm for Earth Day! We will be hosting a Rally & March - RSVP here! Check out our calendar below for YUCCA & Earth Care events as well as other important community events happening in our area.
