    • Climate-Adaptive Design: Creating Resilient Waterfronts Thursday, January 12, 2017 at 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM How can municipalities create waterfronts that are both welcoming and resilient to climate change? This Climate Smart Communities webinar will describe how several communities along the Hudson River are working with Cornell students to develop waterfront designs that are beautiful and resilient to climate risks like flooding. The Climate-Adaptive Design (CAD) studio is a partnership between Cornell Landscape Architecture, Cornell Water Resources Institute, and the DEC Hudson River Estuary Program. Speakers will describe how the CAD studio uses the design process to inspire new thinking and provide technical assistance at little or no cost to participating municipalities. Please provide us with your name and community affiliation, either via email or telephone to the Office of Climate Change at climatechange@dec.ny.gov or 518-402-8448. In the event that we cancel or postpone this webinar, respondents will be notified. (December 9, 2016) The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation

    On the evening of Inauguration Day, all those who want to create positive change in our community and our world are invited to come together as one.  We will take steps to move towards the openness of heart, aliveness of body and clarity of purpose we need to generate positive, creative responses to the world’s situation. We will begin to release what most distresses us, as we listen to one another and connect to our deepest values and wisdom. On this night of profound change in our world, we can shift from powerlessness and anxiety into hope-filled action.  We can find our role in collectively being the change the world needs.

    Music and Dancing will follow  the program for those who wish to stay

    The event is free, but please register at www.pachamama.org/workshop/3401/Inaugurating%20 to assure that there is seating for everyone. Nominal donations will be gratefully accepted to help defray costs.

    Climate Action at the Local, State, and Federal Levels

    There are currently actions that can be taken at the local and State level to fight climate change, and there is a need to coalesce people to lobby for carbon fee and dividend at the federal level. Representatives of the Rochester People’s Climate Coalition will be presenting information on Community Choice Aggregation, the New York State Climate and Community Protection Act, and the Citizen’s Climate Lobby proposal for carbon fee and dividend. There will be a presentation and discussion on each of these topics. Efforts are already under way to create a Community Choice Aggregation program in the Rochester metropolitan area. This is very exciting because it would result in a lower fixed-rate for electricity for residents and small business in participating municipalities, and a mechanism to grow our local renewable energy supply.

    The following description is taken directly from Wikipedia:

    Before the Flood is a 2016 documentary film about climate change directed by Fisher Stevens. The film was produced as a collaboration between Stevens, Leonardo DiCaprio, James Packer, Brett Ratner, Trevor Davidoski, and Jennifer Davisson Killoran. Martin Scorsese is an executive producer.[2]

    As revealed by DiCaprio on September 9, 2016 at the Toronto International Film Festival, the documentary has debuted October 30, 2016 on the National Geographic Channel.[3][4] As part of National Geographic's commitment to covering climate change, the documentary was made widely available and free of charge on various platforms.[5]

    At the European premiere in London in October 2016, DiCaprio introduced the film as follows:Before The Flood is the product of an incredible three-year journey that took place with my co-creator and director Fisher Stevens. We went to every corner of the globe to document the devastating impacts of climate change and questioned humanity's ability to reverse what may be the most catastrophic problem mankind has ever faced. There was a lot to take on. All that we witnessed on this journey shows us that our world's climate is incredibly interconnected and that it is at urgent breaking point. ... We wanted to create a film that gave people a sense of urgency, that made them understand what particular things are going to solve this problem. We bring up the issue of a carbon tax, for example, which I haven't seen in a lot of documentaries. Basically, sway a capitalist economy to try to invest in renewables, to bring less money and subsidies out of oil companies. These are the things that are really going to make a massive difference. ... We need to use our vote ... We cannot afford to have political leaders out there that do not believe in modern science or the scientific method or empirical truths ... We cannot afford to waste time having people in power that choose to believe in the 2 percent of the scientific community that is basically bought off by lobbyists and oil companies.[6]

    President Trump is a danger to our communities and environment.

    His administration of corporate cronies will protect elite interests while threatening our water, air, and food, undermining civil rights, and risking climate chaos.

    On February 2, New Yorkers will rally at Senator Schumer’s offices across the state urging him to resist Trump’s agenda! As the nation’s top Democrat, Senator Chuck Schumer must stand strong against Trump’s catastrophic Cabinet appointments and his climate-destroying plans.

    Pachamama Alliance of Rochester has started a new monthly gathering to inspire, support and empower each other as we live into our vision of an environmentally sustainable, socially just, inter-culturally respectful, relationally rich, and spiritually fulfilling world.  Our next gathering is 1:30-3:30 pm on Sunday, March 5, in the red brick building immediately to the west (left) of Asbury United Methodist Church. The building’s own address is 1010 East Ave.  At this next gathering, we will explore how we experience and participate in the old paradigm of separation and domination, open to the ways this creates pain in ourselves and the things we care about, open to the ways Life wants to express itself through us at this time in our lives and the history of our planet, and discern ways that we can add the ounces of our weight to the new paradigm in our own daily lives.  Music, visuals and a whole-body awakening will help engage our whole selves in the process.  If you’d like to attend, please e-mail Padme Livingstone at padmelivingstone@gmail.com

    Keeping green space is essential to a prosperous city, our health and the environment and combating climate change. If we could get Mother's Out Front in the room for the meeting it would send a powerful message about what our community and moms want and NEED! Please join, and if possible, give a short statement to city council on how adding green space would be beneficial to combating climate change and adding a large building development is taxing Rochester's climate and beyond.  Contact: Heather Dulisse hdulisse@googlemail.com

    During this monologue play done by Carolyn Coit Dancy, you will learn in Rachel’s own words how she came to write Silent Spring. It is rare that a single book changes the course of history, but Silent Spring did exactly that. In her book, Rachel Carson sounded the alarm about the dangers of uncontrolled use of pesticides. The outcry that followed its 1962 publication forced the banning of DDT and spurred revolutionary changes in the laws affecting our air, land and water.

    To Change Everything, We Need Everyone The Rochester People’s Climate Coalition will kick-off a climate-focused Earth Month with a forum: “New York: The State of Climate Action” that brings two New York State experts to town:

    Mark Dunlea is chair of the Green Education and Legal Fund and helps coordinate the statewide campaign to transition to 100% renewables in NYS by 2030. He will provide an update on state efforts around renewable energy, including a new study just announced by the Governor. He will also discuss state legislation for a carbon tax; the Attorney General's effort to investigate the fossil fuel industry role in promoting climate denial; divesting the state pension funds from fossil fuels; and, Governor Cuomo's $7.6 billion bailout of the nuclear industry

    Elizabeth (Betta) Broad is the Outreach Director for the New Yorkers for Clean Power campaign, working to accelerate the transition to a renewable energy economy in New York State. She will provide information on some of NYCP's current priorities including on the ground organizing and expansion of electric vehicles, community solar, renewable heating and cooling and energy efficiency. She will also give an update on her work with Citizens for Local Power to create a Community Choice Aggregation in the Mid-Hudson. A resident of Kingston, she serves on the Kingston Conservation Advisory Council, the Kingston Climate Smart Commission and the Ulster Climate Smart Committee.

    Following the main speakers and Q&A on their presentations, local organizations will provide concrete opportunities for everyone to take action to make a difference at local, state and federal levels.
