Netzerocitywide2050.1

Austin City Council adopted a resolution to become carbon neutral as soon as feasible, but no later than 2050. This is one of the most ambitious goals set by a city in the world and we are going to help with the development of the framework how to get there, and write up sector plan on what energy, waste, transportation and manufacturing sectors have to offer to make this a reality.

Netzerocitywide2050.1

FEAT, the Faith based Energy Action Team is bringing together houses of worship to promote climate stewardship and advocacy at their facilities, with their members and other organizations around town.

Our mission: Climate Buddies is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that wants to empower people to include climate change considerations into every decision they make. We focus on live interaction with groups of people, for-profits, spiritual groups, public and academia. We focus on people, inspiration, guidance and are result driven. Anyone who wants to start to integrate climate considerations in decision making is welcome to join us or invite us for collaboration.

Our invitation to you: meeting the global energy and climate challenges

  • If you could work on meeting the greatest challenge humankind has ever faced, would you?
  • Would it surprise you to know that the climate and oceanic systems have been so perturbed by the massive burning of fossil fuels that the very continuation of human civilization is threatened?
  • Do you yearn to be able to say to your grandchildren, and theirs – and everyone else’s – that you did your part to leave the earth in a healthier condition than when you were born into it?
  • Many suspect that the time left to return the earth to a healthy, resilient condition capable of sustaining human civilization is short. The climate recovery challenge is in fact an energy issue, a challenge to increase both the energy available to power essential services and to make affordable, renewable energy accessible to all.
  • We must and can increase the supply of energy available while reducing the total greenhouse gas emissions associated with energy generation to near-zero rates.

Understanding these premises, we must have the courage to yearn for a credible possibility that each of us, and billions of others like us from all over the world, will become true caretakers for the earth – our planet that has given life to our kind; the creation which protects and nourishes us even in its injured state.

We believe in a world where if we take care of the earth, we can take care of the people. The economy is facilitating in this, not the starting point, just the result.
