There are lots of great reason to support local solar and one of them is certainly the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

With this in mind, we will dedicate our October happy hour to a panel discussion of climate change, including the latest information presented in the recently released Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report.

2013 IPCC report cover

Panelist will include Luke Metzger, Director of Environment Texas, and Dave Cortez, Organizer at Sierra Club.

Our planet’s climate is changing faster than predicted, making the need for an accelerated switch to clean energy sources even more critical. As we continue to urge the Austin City Council to adopt more ambitious solar goals, knowing the facts about climate change will be important.

The full IPCC report (Climate Change 2013: The Physical Science Basis) is available for download.

State Parking Garages (usually free after 6PM) can be found next to, behind and across from Scholz Garten. San Jacinto Blvd., 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th, and Trinity have parking garage entrances.

We hope to see you there!
