@texasobserver - ‘State of Drought: conversations on the future of water in texas’ 'As a changing climate threatens the whole country with deeper droughts and more furious floods that put ever more people and property at risk, Texas has become a bellwether state for water debates. Will there be enough water for everyone? Is there the will to take the steps necessary to defend ourselves against the sea? Is it in the nature of Americans to adapt to nature in flux?’ Join Observer editor Forrest Wilder, rural reporter Christopher Collins, environmental reporter Naveena Sadasivam
and McGraw for a series of conversations about Texas’ convoluted and outdated water policy.

Austin: June 26 at Hotel Ella, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Alpine: July 13 at Come and Take It BBQ, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Brownsville: July 15 WorkPub Cowork, 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

"Most of my dad’s side of the family ended up in Pennsylvania for work in the extractive industry, coal mining especially. Some worked the iron furnaces by Fort Braddock. My grandpa suffered a mining accident and had to switch to working a crane to load barges. He taught my dad to hunt, clean game, and tap trees for syrup. My grandma balanced working on a farm, in factories, and as a postmaster to keep off welfare after my grandpa died. Their mentality has always been ‘pull yourself up by the bootstraps.’ My dad was always drilling that idea in my head. I remember when he realized, and said to me, ‘You’ve sort of become an activist now.’ It was funny to hear the way he said those words. He believes in dedicating yourself to, staying in, and moving up the ranks of one job. I’d be in a different place if I’d done that. But, because I didn’t, I’ve done so many things, studied different subjects, and am constantly changing, improving, and adding to the way I think."

A safe climate & livable future are possible. We want everyone to understand that this reality for our youth and future generations is in reach. Check out this presentation we designed for distribution to schools, teachers, students, & other groups for use in support of deeper conversations about climate recovery & the remedy being requested in Juliana v.

🤔 What do paper, plastic, glass, e-waste, and fruit & veggie scraps have in common? They can all be recycled! ♻️ .

Grades of Green is helping @bizhaus El Segundo divert it’s waste. We set up a compost bucket in the shared kitchen at BizHaus that helps members divert up to 5 lbs of food waste per week, and BizHaus is now starting to collect e-waste! 🙌🏼.

What are your best tips to divert waste either in the office or on campus? 🌎

"My advice for people is to challenge the way that they think. Actively educate yourself on different worldviews. Identity is a huge human need and I don’t think enough focus is put on it. People should actively think about on climate change from different perspectives. That will help people understand how better to approach it.” Meet Kayla Devault, an engineering student, climate change activist, and the fourth person we've profiled for our 2018 series.

"The only thing that combats climate change is large-scale structural change that will take the collective work of hundreds and thousands and millions of people to be successful. It will take new laws and new policy at all levels of government, and it will take a lot of people and a lot of effort to get to that place."

On the last day of #Pacificnorthquest we finally found the spot to build a booter. So much fun sessioning it on a @westonsnowboards #splitboard 📷:@rileybathurst @snowledge.co #snowledgeispowder

What is the real price of oil? For people in developed countries, it’s the price you see on gas station signs. For people in developing countries, it can often be counted in lost lives and livelihoods. When giant oil and gas companies begin extracting oil in impoverished nations, exploitation is often not far behind. Such was the case with Shell’s abuses in Ogoniland, Nigeria, where the company systematically contaminated 386 square miles of the Niger River delta. Leaking wells have contaminated soil and drinking water for the last 30 years in the area, proving detrimental for local public health. It’s estimated that it will take another 30 years to reverse the pollution. Shell has been found liable for $1 billion in damages, but so long as the opportunity for exploitation exists, so too will it’s practice. At a certain point, the real price of oil just isn’t worth it.
