Turning The Tides Web presence is being updated.
While the TTT group has been away things have certainly changed. Plastic Bag Bans have happened in many places, including within the USA. But other issues have begun to cause alarm.
Climate change has become the focus of so much pro-environmental activity today. Acidification of the worlds oceans, warming of the earths atmosphere, and so many other issues are beginning to cause alarm in many quarters.
Climate Scientists are in nearly unanimous agreement that if fossil fuels continue to be burned at the present rate it will result in catastrophic climatic changes within years (not centuries). Some changes are visible today. No one in Juneau can miss the rapid (for a glacier) disappearance of much of the Mendenhall Glacier!
While politicians dither real people have started to advocate for a new focus on Climate change and actions to prevent the worst outcomes from it. It will be fun to have Turning The Tides actively involved.
In fact, Dixie, founder of TTT is in South Asia at the moment working to promote a special concert called the Ring of Fire. Check the Ring of Fire link under the “Our Work” Tab.
On a local level, Turning The Tides plans to contribute to the local Beach clean-ups this spring (Possibly in conjunction with Litter Free). This fall plan to join Turning The Tides at the International Coastal Cleanup event.
