Chasing Ice at SOCAN Monthly MNeeting

Directed by Jeff Orlowski, “Chasing Ice” is the stunning 2012 filmed account of James Balog’s Extreme Ice Survey. The film, having won awards at film festivals all over the world, will be featured at the next Southern Oregon Climate Action Now meeting on July 29th @ 6:00 pm at the Medford Public Library.   Admission is free, but donations to SOCAN are encouraged.

By means of time lapse photography, Balog documented one of the most dramatic consequences of our warming planet: the melting of Arctic glaciers.  The film dramatically depicts the failures and successes of the expedition while capturing amazing images of huge ice blocks larger than Manhattan breaking away as glaciers across the Arctic recede. 

Total running time is 76 minutes, but the video will be shown in two parts, punctuated by, and followed by, a brief panel and audience discussion.  The official Trailer can be seen at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eIZTMVNBjc4.  For more information on SOCAN, our projects and events, visit http://socan.info

The big difference will be the amount of pesticides in your weed. That’s because starting Jan. 2,  when California’s vast legal marijuana market opens, all cannabis must be tested — and most chemicals will be banned. Much of California’s cannabis is tainted, including the “medicinal” stuff. But soon state-sanctioned weed may become the greenest in the nation.

Electric car use by country | Wikipedia

Increasing adoption of electric vehicles around the world has in recent years been expanding rapidly. As of the end of 2016: Cumulative global sales of highway legal plug-in electric passenger cars and light utility vehicles achieved the 2 million unit milestone in December 2016, of which, 38% were sold in 2016.[1]. The 1 million milestone had only been reached in September 2016. Global sales of the light-duty plug-in vehicle segment achieved a 0.86% market share of total new car sales, up from 0.62% in 2015 and 0.38% in 2014.[3] The global ratio between all-electric cars (BEVs) and plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) was 61:39, up from 59:41 at the end of 2015. Cumulative sales of plug-in hybrids totaled almost 800,000 units. Despite their rapid growth, plug-in electric cars represented only 0.15% of the 1.4 billion motor vehicles on the world's roads, up from 0.1% in 2015.
