Do your share of climate protection
Go on a Low Carbon Diet

Get started on your plan to use less energy with the support of a group of like-minded people.  This class is based on The Low Carbon Diet: a 30 Day Program to Lose 5000 Pounds, by David Gershon.  We will meet four Wednesdays: May 23, June 6, June 20th and (skipping 4th of July) July 11th at 7-9 PM at an inside-the-loop location.  The book will be sold at cost at the class.  At this free class you will learn how to save energy by using less gas, gasoline and electricity and more solar, wind and leg/arm power.

By making simple changes to your every-day actions, you can reduce your annual household CO2 output by at least 15%.  And, for those who are more ambitious, we'll explain how to become "carbon neutral" and how to help your church, school or community go on a low carbon diet.

You'll learn how to:
       Calculate your CO2 footprint with our easy-to-use "carbon calculator"
       Create "cool household systems" that save the Earth while saving you money
       Take on "cool lifestyle practices" that reduce CO2 emissions without cramping your style
       Purchase carbon offsets to become "carbon neutral" 
       Form a Low Carbon Diet "EcoTeam" with friends, colleagues, co-workers or your faith community

Denis Hayes, a co-founder of Earth Day, said "This book is fabulous!  It's practical, accessible and effective. Getting people to take on global warming at a personal level is critical to tackling the issue."

Enrollment is limited to 10 people. 
To register, email Nan Hildreth at <escramble('NanHildreth','riseup.net');>  ;  or call 713-842-6643.
Inner loop location.  Houston Climate Protection Alliance www.HoustonClimateProtection.org
Your teachers will be Nancy Edwards, who co-taught the first class, and Steven Stelzer, a green architect.

Event Description:

June 5, 2007 marks the 40th anniversary of Israel's illegal and immoral occupation of the West Bank, East Jerusalem, the Gaza Strip and the Syrian Golan Heights. The film, THE IRON WALL, depicts the demeaning, demoralizing and brutal treatment of the Palestinian people at the hands of Israeli soldiers acting on orders of the Israeli government. More about the film at http://www.theironwall.ps/aboutfilm.html>www.theironwall.ps/aboutfilm.html We invite you to watch this informative but disturbing 52 minute documentary, THE IRON WALL, which vividly depicts how the Israeli government systematically displaces and expels an indigenous people and appropriates land to Israeli settlers. Over 200 settlements and outposts have been built and occupied in direct violation of international law and at the expense of a contiguous and viable Palestinian entity. REFRESHMENTS: Come early at 6:30 pm and bring non-messy food and drinks to share, like chips, dips, salsa, coookies etc. Film starts at 7:30 pm. PLEASE R.S.V.P. to Bob Carter - by noon June 5th so we have enough chairs for everyone.

Start: 7:00 pm
End: 9:00 pm

Event Description:

AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH, which offers a passionate and inspirational look at one man's fervent crusade to halt global warming's deadly progress in its tracks by exposing the myths and misconceptions that surround it. That man is former Vice President Al Gore, who, in the wake of defeat in the 2000 election, re-set the course of his life to focus on a last-ditch, all-out effort to help save the planet from irrevocable change. In this eye-opening and poignant portrait of Gore and his "traveling global warming show," Gore also proves himself to be one of the most misunderstood characters in modern American public life. Here he is seen as never before in the media - funny, engaging, open and downright on fire about getting the surprisingly stirring truth about what he calls our "planetary emergency" out to ordinary citizens before it's too late. A guest speaker will be on hand for a questions and answer session following the film.

Join the Houston Institute for Culture for a  free double screening of the documentaries "The Power of Community? How Cuba Survived Peak Oil" and "Independent Intervention - breaking silence" 7 p.m. Saturday June 16, The Havens Center, 1827 W. Alabama. "Independent Intervention" will screen again 7 p.m. Sunday, June 17 at the Havens Center. www.houstonculture.org/film

Independent Intervention is an award-winning documentary about United States media coverage of the conflict in Iraq. Focusing on the human costs of war, it contrasts corporate-controlled media coverage of the
invasion of Iraq with independent media reports of the brutal realities on the ground.

Through discussions with media experts including Amy Goodman, Noam Chomsky, Dahr Jamail, Danny Schechter, David Barsamian, Kalle Lasn, Norman Solomon, and James Zogby, the film investigates important
issues and systems that govern today's information flow, and shows how these systems of control reveal themselves during times of political turmoil and war.

Independent Intervention also includes commentary by Howard Zinn, Arundhati Roy, Bill Moyers, Michael Moore, and Jeremy Scahill.
