Environmental blog gives a shout-out to UUCPA

DeSmog Blog, a website devoted to countering global warming misinformation campaigns, has noted with approval a recent action taken by our Green Sanctuary Committee.

Palo Alto Paying Over $20,000 Annually to Natural Gas Trade Group Fighting Climate Action

Palo Alto maintains membership in the American Public Gas Association (APGA), a leading natural-gas industry organization. The Green Sanctuary Committee wrote to city officials urging them to stop paying $21,000 a year in dues to APGA, which lobbies against the city’s goals of curbing climate pollution and phasing out the use of fossil fuels, including natural gas.

The committee meets the second Sunday of each month, online at noon. All are welcome to join the members in their work for a greener planet.
