Green Drinks Discussion Agenda for January 2016

  • If your business or non-profit relies on the internet, help to Save the Internet. You don’t want laws that allow traffic to your website to be shut down because bigger companies can pay more for access and lock your traffic out. Fight CISA and other unreasonable privacy intrusions at Fight for the Future.
  • Our family, led by Horticulturist and social justice leader Ivan Wei setting up an urban farm and community garden in Paterson. Wanna help?
  • Municipal Water System privatization looms on New Jersey’s horizon. We need to nip this in the bud!
  • Great Adventure’s holding company is trying to get permission to kill 90 acres of trees to put up a solar farm where they now stand, instead of putting the panels over its vast 100 acre parking lot structure – where they would offer much better environmental protection. We need to keep challenging the wisdom of destroying so many carbon-sequestering and moisture-storing trees.
  • A company is trying to locate a garbage burning incinerator in Paterson. Let’s talk about this.
  • The New Meadowlands Project is beginning and community input is being sought on designs to protect the area against flooding during big weather events. The project is funded by the EPA and administered by NJ DEP. If you’re an interested local resident or a person with special knowledge about flooding protections, shoot me an email.
