Demonstrators requested Eugene city leaders to do more to guard the environment.
The group, 350 Eugene, says Eugene is not doing sufficient to lower its carbon dioxide emissions. The activists say City government should work more difficult to meet the ambitious aims specified by the city council in 2010 and 2014.
They put down to demo that which would occur if their calls for actions were ignored and sang familiar tunes with an environmental twist.
The demonstrators spoke out in Monday night’s City Council meeting.
Councilor Greg Evans mentioned much more work should be accomplished. However he stated, locating the means to accomplish this within their funding is not difficult.
“We really don’t possess each one of the tools in the uterus essential to move us rapidly forward even as we would like to be, but we all have been dancing,” Evans said.
“Start thinking about everything you would like for your own children and in the future era to come,” demonstrator Patty Hine explained. ”
When the tech is appropriate, we aren’t going to have a really livable planet nothing similar to exactly what we have been born into and that’s worth fighting for.”
Their presentations comprised circling Harris corridor in Eugene’s entrance with posters revealing increasing CO2 emissions over the years.
