Over 300 in the Streets and over 200 in the classroom; A report back from Denver

Wow!  That is all I keep thinking as I finally catch up on sleep from the National Summit in Denver. It was truly an incredible four days, with workshops, movie screenings, trainings, and a beautiful day of action. A few months ago the program working group came together to create our theme “escalating the fight between communities and the oil and gas industry”; we thought about it as a concept, but it was put into action in Denver.

Tell us what you thought about the Summit!

Here are some highlights:

It was a pleasure meeting many of you for the first time and lovely seeing so many of you again. Movement work is often hard and tiring, but we got to keep doing it! One more thing! We are doing survey to see how the summit went- Can you take 2 minutes and fill it out?

See you in the Streets!

PS:  We are hosting a briefing with the Post Carbon Institute on October 22, 2015 at 11amPacific, 2pm Eastern: Shale Gas and Tight Oil Reality Check. Much of the cost-benefit debate over fracking has come down to the perception of just how much domestic oil and gas it can produce and at what cost. To answer this question, policymakers, the media, and the general public have typically turned to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Information Administration (EIA), which every year publishes its Annual Energy Outlook (AEO). Energy analyst David Hughes of Post Carbon Institute who predicted the vast downgrade of available oil resources in California’s Monterey shale has done a careful review of the AEO 2015 and will be sharing his findings. Sign up here!
