Today, we pulled off our Climate Social, the result of weeks of planning. I represented Indivisible Somerville’s energy and environment lab. We had a decent turnout from IS, and from other climate groups operating in Somerville, including Fossil Free Somerville, which is really hitting its stride. All of Somerville’s aldermen had pledged to attend, but in the end, most were caught up in a contentious committee meeting back at City Hall. But two brave alderman did show up, which was great.
The idea of the Climate Social was to get across the extent that Somerville citizens care about climate. To that end, I said a few words about how many Indivisible Somerville members are concerned about climate and the environment, and how we’re hear to help make climate initiatives happen. It may have been recorded — if I can find a copy, I’ll embed it here.
