This Future Friday, let me tell you about our family endeavor. I've been writing about solar panels for the CDCA and the clinic...well, the Woodocks (Woodard/Murdock) have joined this parade.
|Coury Joseph Jessica Tiff Daniel - New Year's Eve - 2014/12/31|
Coury and Cassie (living in California) donated early on. Daniel and Mike (living here) have been negotiating with the solar company to get good prices and specs for the installations.
Tiff and Liz (living in Texas) are matching gifts given to the project in honor of their wedding that happened in July 2020...instead of friends and family joining them here for their celebration in December 2020...COVID...sigh. Here is the link if you do Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/donat
Joseph and Alex (living in New Jersey) are sending out thank you letters for us for the donations.
And Jessica (living in Massachusetts) has an art "channel" on YouTube and is auctioning a painting she did of a Nicaraguan scene. You can see the video of her painting as she explains HOW climate change is affecting Nicaragua. It is about 2 and 1/2 minutes long. Here is the link. https://youtu.be/7_6zLliBpr8
It warms our parental hearts to have all the kids involved, but not surprising.... Some own their own homes, have solar panels, one has an electric car, and all the family knows that climate change is THE. MOST. PRESSING. ISSUE.
Helen Yuill wrote in the the February 11th NicaNotes...
In the lead up to COP26 [the 26th meeting in Nov. 2021 of the Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change], the Nicaraguan representative Dr Paul Oquist, argues that the high level of social and economic destruction caused by Covid-19 and its impact on humanity will be ‘small, transient and recoverable’ compared with the potential total, irreversible destruction of the climate crisis.". https://afgj.org/nicanotes-nic
I know it is hard to imagine something worse coming down the pike, but we have to. We must imagine, work, and throw money, brain power, energy, and political will at climate change.
IT. IS. THE. MOST. PRESSING. ISSUE.
