Kathleen and I spotted the above organization that combines many of Austin's interests and passions. - $500
Help Our Congress Understand Energy and Climate
What is the issue, problem, or challenge? Congress makes decisions that affect our energy, natural resource, and climate policies--with limited federal dollars and time--and new staff all the time. National policy supporting clean, renewable energy, will lead to less burning of dirty carbon-based fuels, saving lives and reducing the already evident impacts of climate change.
How will this project solve this problem? EESI organizes well-regarded briefings that will continue to inform Congress and the policy community on key energy and climate issues. The briefings explain the many impacts of climatic shifts already here, highlighting the devastating impacts on human health, and animal and plant life. We are focusing on policy solutions for resilient communities, based on clean energy. EESI is highly respected within Congress for providing compelling stories and timely facts.
It is our sincere hope that these collective donations will continue to fulfill Laurie’s charge to “live a little larger” to fill the space Austin left behind. It is so wonderful to know that his impact on the world around him continues.
