4/22 - Earth Day: Replacing Fossil Fuels Quickly and Economically Across North Carolina
Jim Warren, executive director of NC WARN, will describe a path to essentially eliminate fossil fuels in North Carolina’s electricity mix by 2030, and get halfway there by 2025. The strategy, as spelled out in NC WARN’s NC Clean Path 2025 report by engineer Bill Powers, employs local solar combined with battery storage and ramped-up energy efficiency and “demand response” programs. It is cheaper, better for the climate and creates more jobs than Duke Energy’s plan, which relies on natural gas far into the future.
4/29 - Passing on our Stories: Meeting elders talk about the “ Sixties and Seventies”
Meeting elders have been invited to offer different, personal perspectives on how they experienced the turbulent years of the Civil Rights movement during the 1960s - 70s. Listen as memories are shared and history is passed on to younger generations of Quakers!
