November 2017

“Urge Local Governments to Meet Climate Goals”

You’ve heard the smart advice:  “Think globally.  Act locally.”  This pertains very well to the climate crisis.  Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation’s November 2017 TV program encourages people to push our local governments to take strong actions to protect the climate.

We approach this from several angles.  We’ll consider specific actions local governments anywhere can take to meet bold goals to protect our climate.  Ordinary people can help! 

One guest is a great expert on the technical aspects.  Another guest provides cultural and personal approaches.  Our third guest is a local artist who has engaged kids and adults in making art that deals with the climate.

All three guests are active in the Thurston Climate Action Team (TCAT, www.thurstonclimateaction.org), a non-profit organization that works directly with local governments and businesses in Thurston County WA to raise awareness about climate change – and the opportunities for economic development, cost savings and improved health through clean, renewable energy.

TCAT’s new campaign -- “People for a Carbon Free Olympia” -- urges strong local support for the City of Olympia’s climate and clean energy goals.

Recently the City of Olympia committed to achieving dramatic community-wide reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.  These emissions are the human-driven cause of the climate breakdown and destruction we’re seeing in hurricanes and wildfires.  Olympia is also talking with Lacey and Tumwater about developing a common climate action plan that would cover all three cities.  Let’s urge our county government to take strong actions too.  

People anywhere can watch Olympia FOR’s November 2017 TV program at any time and also read a thorough summary of what our guests said (including links to sources of more information).  Simply visit www.olympiafor.org, click “TV Programs,” and scroll down to November 2017.  It will air 14 times during November (every Monday at 1:30 pm, every Wednesday at 5:00 pm, and every Thursday at 9:00 pm) on TCTV cable channel 22 in Thurston County

SPECIAL PROGRAMS
Sometimes we produce special programs.  These air on TCTV at various dates and times.

We are posting our recent INTERVIEW and SPECIAL programs on the internet.  (Although we got broadcast rights for airing the “BIG PICTURE” films, we are not able to post them on the internet, although some might be posted under their own names.)  Also, our older programs are not available in this format.

To watch a program, simply click on a link below to watch that episode. 

The Olympia FOR’s December 2017 program is the final episode in Olympia FOR’s TV series.  Starting in January 2018, producer/host Glen Anderson will start a new TV series (“Glen’s Parallax Perspectives”) with a different looking set but the same range of issues.  Those programs and thorough summaries will be posted to www.parallaxperspectives.org in that blog’s “TV Programs” area and also in the area appropriate for each episode’s particular topic (e.g., “Nonviolence” or “Nuclear Weapons” or “Environment).  They might also be posted as “Special Programs” on Olympia FOR’s website.  All programs currently on Olympia FOR’s website will continue to remain on www.olympiafor.org, and some will be copied onto the appropriate topics on www.parallaxperspectives.org
