As we live with the devastating effects of human-caused climate change and work to slow or reverse the warming trend and protect life on our planet, we may encounter paradoxes that make us wonder if our actions are meaningful or meaningless.

For example, our city, county, and state are quickly transitioning to electric cars and buses. However, does the extraction of materials for electric vehicles have its own environmental and human costs?

We are all trying to reduce our use of plastics, which are made from fossil fuels. However, does switching from plastic to heavier materials like glass increase the climate impacts from shipping?

Many of us have made numerous lifestyle choices to reduce our carbon footprint. However, are our personal choices pointless in a world where so many people don’t have access or can’t afford to make those healthier choices?

Recognizing these paradoxes can cause anxiety and paralysis, or they can be an opportunity for exploration and connection. Let’s talk about what paradoxes we are facing and how we can sit with and make space for them while continuing to do our work.

Please think about and bring examples of the paradoxes you are living with to discuss with the group.

We will also start our meeting with updates about the five pieces of state legislation we have been supporting.
