Climate Reality Leadership Training with Vice President Al Gore

In March of 2017, I'll be participating in a leadership training with Vice President Al Gore to prepare me to give presentations based on his Oscar-winning film An Inconvenient Truth.  The presentation focuses on the effects of climate change and the actions we can take to mitigate our dangerous impact on the earth's climate and adapt in a way to help ensure the safety and well being of our planet for generations to come.

For more information about the training, Al Gore's Climate Reality Project, and to schedule a presentation for your group of any size, please click here.  (I'm in the process of updating the website and adding content on the Climate Reality Project, so please check back soon for new material.)

If you'd like to chip in $5 or $10 to help cover the costs of my getting to this rare training and participating with grassroots leaders and climate scientists from all over the world (yes, science is a thing!), please visit my fundraising page at  I appreciate your support, and I'm especially eager to stay in touch and help bring this presentation to your community after my training with Vice President Gore.

Protect Our ACA Health Care Rally
Denver, Colorado and Over 100 Other Locations Across the Country

Saturday, February 25th from Noon to 3 p.m.
Denver's Civic Center Park (Colfax & Bannock)

Join people across the country this Saturday, February 25th, to stand up for the Affordable Care Act and the ground-breaking reforms that extended health care to tens of millions of Americans.Sen.

Bernie Sanders announced Wednesday that more than 100 rallies will take place from coast to coast on Saturday to fight Republican attempts to take health care away from 20 million Americans.

“On Saturday at more than 100 rallies, taking place from coast to coast, the American people will let Republicans know they are standing against their attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, throwing 20 million Americans off of their health insurance, privatizing Medicare, making massive cuts in Medicaid, raising the cost of prescription drugs for seniors and, at the same time, giving a massive tax break to the top 1 percent. The American people want to improve the Affordable Care Act, not destroy it," said Sanders.

Sanders continued, “We’ve seen unprecedented grassroots energy at Republican town hall meetings across the country this week. The American people are fighting back. As the only major country on earth not to guarantee health care for all, we are not going backwards. We're going forwards."

Sanders, the Senate Democrats’ outreach leader, and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer previously sent a letter calling for rallies on Saturday to oppose efforts by President Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress to repeal the Affordable Care Act and take health coverage away from more than 20 million Americans.

“The Republican Party’s plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act is in chaos,” Schumer and Sanders said in the letter. “Public support for the law is at an all-time high, while the number of Americans supporting its immediate repeal without a replacement has dipped below 15 percent. It is critical we seize this momentum.
