The Climate Crisis, COVID-19, and Where We Go From Here

Monday, November 9, 7:00–8:00 pm

How is climate change affecting the world in 2020? Why are the poor and communities of color especially suffering? And what is the relationship between COVID-19 and climate change?

We invite you to join 350 Madison for our monthly meeting on Monday, November 9, at 7:00 pm, via Zoom to hear 350 Madison’s own Gail Nordheim briefly address these important questions. She will also discuss why recent developments in renewable energy can give us hope as we rebuild our economy after COVID.

Gail’s presentation uses materials from the Climate Reality Project, a nonprofit led by former Vice President Al Gore. The Climate Reality Project trains participants to give presentations on climate change. The goal is to bring the reality of climate change to people in their communities, so that they will push for rapid decarbonization and strong, equitable climate policies.

Gail Nordheim has been active with 350 Madison since 2016 and is currently President of the Board of Directors. Gail attended Climate Reality Project training in 2019. She hopes that other 350 members will also take this training (now offered virtually) so that we can develop an active Speakers Bureau for 350 Madison.

350 Madison monthly meetings are open to the public. Typically held the first Monday of the month, they offer an opportunity to be inspired by a diverse group of climate activists who share personal stories and talents and support our campaigns, events, and direct actions. These meetings are a great way to learn about what 350 Madison does, meet other 350’ers, and find the best place to plug in to the action. Please join us!

Tar Sands

The Tar Sands Campaign mobilizes people to oppose new oil pipelines in WI. Our current goal is to block Enbridge’s rerouting of Line 5 in the Lake Superior watershed. We support efforts led by those most impacted, including tribes, landowners, and community members.

Divest & Defund

The Divest & Defund Team works to convince institutions that investments in fossil fuels are not only ethically and fiscally irresponsible, but are literally wrecking the planet we call home—all for profit. We are currently focusing on banks that fund pipeline projects.

Climate Solutions

Community Climate Solutions focuses on making change across Dane County, targeting both systems and individual levels. We assist local governments to achieve climate goals. We broaden and deepen citizen climate crisis awareness and action.
