How wonderful to see the snow falling after such a dry October and November.  350 MONO looks forward to a new year with a more favorable climate for CLIMATE ACTION!  A ray of hope is the recent introduction of the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend  Act  in Congress by a
bipartisan group of representatives.  Thank you, Citizen’s Climate Lobby, for all the groundwork enabling this to finally happen!  Don Condon of Mammoth has been to DC to lobby several times, and took 2 of our local students with him in June on travelships, Ben Trefry and Sofia McKee. 

“To call this legislation a breakthrough is an understatement,” said Citizens’ Climate Lobby Executive Director Mark Reynolds in a press release. “Any long-term solution needs buy-in from both Republicans and Democrats. And now that their constituents are feeling the negative effects of climate change firsthand, both sides are more willing to cooperate on a solution that brings about real change.”

Back by popular demand, the CLIMATE-FRIENDLY CHRISTMAS PARTY will be held this Sunday, Dec. 2 at 2:30pm at the Carles in Mono City.  Hope you can come and celebrate getting through a challenging year with positive climate action on the Eastside. The early start will allow driving back and forth in the daylight . Bring a dish to share for an early supper (no time to cook? bring drinks)  and an UNWRAPPED gift of something  useful around the house you would like to pass on (totally optional). 2:30-3:30 Happy Hour on the deck,  3:30: Short business meeting , goal setting and updates, 4:15  Potluck supper. Friends and family welcome, a good time to get to know each other and bring in new neighbors! There is truly cause for celebration this year with the successful completion of the Pioneer Solar Pavilion.

350 California “Convergence” state-wide meeting planned March 29 – 31, 2019.  More details later on location and program.
