>Local Community Shows Concern for Global Warming
>with Standing Room Only Crowd at Movie Screening and Zero Waste Discussion
>San Diego ? More than 120 local residents
>attended Zero Waste San Diego?s free screening of
>Al Gore?s ?An Inconvenient Truth? at the Point
>Loma Branch Library last night (January 31, 2007).
>Many remained following the movie to take part
>in an open discussion about how adoption and
>implementation of zero waste principles can help
>decrease the amount of greenhouse gas emissions.
>?The turnout was amazing,? said guest speaker
>Richard Anthony. ?We ran out of chairs! And it?s
>a testament to the high level of interest local
>citizens? have regarding global warming and
>resource management. They understand these
>issues are real and now is the time to begin
>implementing solutions.?
>There is no debate in the scientific community
>that the phenomenon of global warming is
>real, and left unchecked, promises massive
>detrimental environmental and sociological
>ramifications on an international scale.
>The zero waste concept offers a viable plan for
>reducing greenhouse gas emissions, as well
>as a multitude of benefits that include a
>stimulated economy, the creation of jobs, and cleaner
>air and water. The program involves rethinking
>the way products and services are engineered,
>manufactured, consumed, and discarded, and has
>been gaining popularity worldwide as the
>most logical approach to long-term resource
>management. New Zealand, South Australia,
>Canberra, Australia, Oregon, Toronto, Seattle,
>Carrboro, North Carolina, and the cities of
>San Francisco, Palo Alto and Oakland and
>counties of Del Norte, Santa Cruz, and Alameda
>in California have already adopted zero waste policies.
>Zero Waste San Diego has embarked on a mission
>to introduce the concept to local
>governments, and ultimately persuade all
>nineteen jurisdictions in the region to adopt
>zero waste goals and implement plans and
>policies to phase out waste and achieve sustainable
>resource management.
>The group?s next community forum will be on
>February 21, 2007, when they will present
>a free screening of ?Our Synthetic Sea? from
>6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Point Loma Branch Library.
>The Point Loma Branch Library is located at 3701
>Voltaire Street, San Diego, CA 92107-1606.
