General Monthly Meetings
Cruise ship practices are toxic–from the smokestacks harming our health, the massive fossil fuel intensive footprint, dumping garbage, human waste and even engine oil straight into waterways, noise pollution disrupting our underwater relatives, on board hospitality workers often underpaid and treated harshly, avoiding taxes while stressing local infrastructure, to bully tactics used on destination communities that push back against these harms–it’s time to envision a #CruiseFreeSalishSea !
Being in solidarity with those most impacted by climate change and other systems of oppression is key to our collective liberation. What does that look like in practice on a personal level vs. an organizational level? Here we’ll distinguish between the two and highlight what our Solidarity Nodes are doing on both those levels.
The most powerful climate solutions are those that help our communities thrive. That’s why Seattle’s Green New Deal calls for a city-wide buildout of affordable housing, coupled with community investments in healthy neighborhoods and strong-anti displacement measures. We’re gearing up to make Green New Deal solutions like affordable housing a top priority in the 2021 local elections.
Join us for an interactive dive into the ways Puget Sound Energy and other fossil fuel companies use deception, manipulation, and misinformation to hide the true health, safety, and climate impacts of fossil fuels like fracked gas. Learn about how to spot and effectively respond to these tricks and educate others around you.
This is the first in a five-part series: “Taking Our Power Back: Puget Sound Energy, fossil fuels, and creating a clean and healthy energy future” (scroll down for parts two through five).
Puget Sound Energy (PSE), the state’s largest energy utility, provides fossil gas and electric energy services to almost two million homes in Washington, spends more on lobbying and campaign contributions annually than even Amazon, plays a large role in pro-fossil gas ad campaigns, and over the next couple of years, could determine the state’s success in transitioning to clean energy.
