    Thanks for your reply and the good points you make.

    I'll try to find a way to bring something useful back to Daily Kos based on the project. That might include information about the curriculum, reports on how the discussion series goes, ideas about making it better, ways to pass the torch, etc. I'm specifically designing the curriculum to be appropriate for a church context, but obviously it can benefit from what others have already developed in other contexts. (Also, I'm not personally a church person; I just think churches are a good place to do the work.)

    How do I share things with Climate Hawks? I've never been clear on how the affiliation groups work here.

    I'm in CO too, and I'm going to visit a local meeting of folks next week to hear about what they're doing this year and to get their ideas.

    PM me any time if you have more ideas about whom I can connect with in CO.

    •  The Climate series for KXL (3+ / 0-)

      is run by a group of climate groups. Check one of the  KXL series for contacts or go to the top of the page under DAILY KOS and click on Groups. You can locate the group(s) you are interested in to contact, join, etc. Contact is through Kosmail. People to contact is  somewhere in the blurb on what the group is about.  It's been awhile since I've been there.

      I am a Unitarian-Universalist, so an out of the box church person. Our churches are strongly involved in climate issues but could be a place to hold workshops or classes. The church office at the UN has an environmental dept that came up with 2 lists of answers to common, inaccurate talking points. One is very simple, the other a little more complex/scientific. All are one sentence.

      The local 350 group should be good. I get  email from the Denver folks. Today was a notice that Food & Water Watch Denver, is having another screening of Gasland 3/12. Not familiar w that group but 350 here does keep contacts with other env. orgs.  

      I have been dealing with financial and medical issues for several years, so have not been able to keep up or be as involved as I would like to be. Haven't given up and the climate issue is too misunderstood and important not to be doing something. (My ex is Env Eng, MS haz waste, Dad (PhD in P Chem) did R&D in building materials and went environmental in '70's, I'm an RN)

       The report by NAS and the British = should be good. Bookmarked+ saw your comment.

      I've been working on designing a curriculum a template as it were that we will be using and adapting depending on venue.

      The first one is in a Yoga Studio. I can send along my 'Storify' ...

      I also have the idea for 350Kiosks which I have designed, portable edu posts kinda like old fashioned hot dog stands eqipped with solar powered tablets where peope can do interactives and find apps and watch video shorts. There would be kinda 'town cryer' impromoto edu moments througout day.

      Placed in malls, plazas, farmers markets, college campuses, whatever .. wherever

      I was thinking about diarying this to get input from community
