The world is gearing up for the U.N. Climate Change Conference in Paris
starting at the end of this month. In preparation for it, the News &
Review--along with alternative newsmedia around the country--solicited
writings from authors, scientists, artists and scholars. We've dubbed this
project Letters to the Future, as each piece is a letter to the writer's
future generations. Enjoy.
In other news: Two local environmentalists join forces to launch a local
chapter of 350.org, whose focus is climate change, in preparation for those
Paris talks (here's how you can get involved!); the City Council nixes a
proposal for managing the airport; longtime Chico business Woof & Poof
prepares to call it quits; and local outdoor advocates form a partnership
of educators just to get kids outside a little more.
