August Contest

This month we are giving away
two tickets to lunch with

Sheila Watt-Cloutier,
winner of the 2006 Canadian Environment Awards
Citation of Lifetime Achievement.

You get lunch at the Westin, Yum.

You get to listen to a Nobel Peace Prize nominee speak about the challenges of climate change and its impacts on her home in Canada's North.

You get to take a friend.

How great is that?

Four years ago on National Public Radio, Ms. Watt-Cloutier said:
"The Arctic Climate Impact Assessment, and even new studies, indicate things are happening faster than predicted in recent assessments. So I would think in four years, if major countries haven't really started to act on addressing this issue, they will be pushed to do so. Because by four years, I would think things will be unfolding even worse than they are today."
As we each, in our own way, strive for a lesser impact from our actions, we can be inspired by one woman who continues her work to find solutions to our global challenge.
Rather humbling to a guy who is just trying to decide where to put the shredded paper.
