Why I’m part of the 350.org movement


Posted on behalf of Mel Strawn, co-chair for the 350 Central Colorado team…  I am, like most or all people, many things. (Walt Whitman said something like that….). Some are or were: artist, educator, administrator, parent and grand parent, truck driver, soldier, retired, fisherman, tennis player…and reader. I’ve followed for over 45 years the emerging story of earth’s ecology, its history and prospects.

Elisabeth and granddaughter

In October of 2013 I became a grandmother. Suddenly and forcefully, the survival of Planet Earth, the meaning of “sustainable into the 7th generation” struck a new, very personal cord.I joined 350 Colorado to be better informed and get actively involved. The to-do list for achieving a safe climate and sustainable future could easily be overwhelming, but 350 Colorado is tackling it through three main categories: 1) resisting extreme energy, 2) supporting creative local solutions that help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and 3) movement building – because the strength of our numbers is our best weapon against Big Oil’s Big Money. I am also volunteering my time as 350 Colorado’s “Fundraising Fairy”.  I’ve learned that as a young, vibrant organization 350 Colorado achieves a lot through volunteer work.

Thanks to everyone who came out today to tell President Obama to Reject the KXL pipeline during his visit to Denver!  About 70 people, many of whom took off work and traveled from around the state, met the President first at Cheesman Park and then reassembled to greet the President’s motorcade as he arrived downtown for a fundraiser.
