I will be unable to attend this Thursday at 3:30. Could the folks who do meet post their significant ideas, plans, etc. to this page so the rest of us can "listen in?"

I can meet then. Anyone else?

Hi, I just read Mckibben's "eaarth" - pretty sobering, even for someone already convinced we were in trouble. I'm fairly new to B'ham but would like to be involved in planning for 10-10-10.

Tristan and Stephanie have put forward two very worthy projects. Do any others project possibilities come to mind?

If we looked toward having a meeting, where would it take place? In Bellingham, in the county?

When I first created this group, I saw it as a place to aggregate projects and in doing so, inspire other related projects. From reading Tristan's proposal, I'm hearing that he would like to see this group be more directive and actually organize projects on a larger scale than small group or individual activities.
