This Thursday, March 10th, The Sanctuary for Independent Media is hosting a Virtual Town Hall about Direct Air Capture, in conjunction with Clean Air Coalition of Greater Ravena Coeymans, Clean Air Action Network of Glens Falls, Beyond Plastics, People of Albany United for Safe Energy, Food & Water Watch, Green Education and Legal Fund, and NATURE Lab and People’s Health Sanctuary!
Following an overview of the Carbon Dioxide Removal Leadership Act (A8597/S8171) which is currently pending in the NYS Assembly and Senate, there will be presentations by June Sekera and Jim Walsh, a Q&A, and a Call to Action.
A little background from The Sanctuary for Independent Media: “ The Carbon Dioxide Removal Leadership Act would generously subsidize Direct Air Capture (DAC), an extremely costly, mechanical-chemical method of carbon capture and storage that is unproven, dangerous, and energy-intensive. DAC would likely require a massive buildout of pipelines to transport CO2. It is an unwise public investment that diverts resources and attention from real solutions.” Learn more by attending the virtual event on Thursday!
The event begins at 7pm. If you are interested, sign up on The Sanctuary for Independent Media’s website: https://www.mediasanctuary.org/event/direct-air-capture/
