January 21st Meeting
Happy New Year!
We are starting a brand new year with new officers, new topics and more fun than last year!
January 21, 2016, Thursday is our first meeting of the year. 7 p.m. for the meeting or, come at 6 p.m. to dine and socialize. As you know, we meet at MJ’s Restaurant, 526 North Second Street, El Cajon, CA.
Our speakers will be Susan Kobara and T.Todd Elvins from Citizens’ Climate Lobby. Economists worldwide agree that the simplest, cheapest, and most effective solution to global warming is to charge fossil fuel companies a steadily rising fee on the carbon in the oil, coal, and gas they extract, and refund 100% of the fee to US Households as a dividend. In this upbeat solution-focused presentation, we will discuss how this policy creates jobs, grows GDP, increases household income, saves lives, improves US competitiveness, and protects our planet.
