Organizational Mission:

LCAN is a network of organizations and individuals committed to fighting global climate change through education and advocacy.

Year Founded: 2007

Significant Accomplishments:

Provided presentations to over 2700 students, Sunday School class members, business people, civic groups, etc.  Each is customized to the audiences' interests and covers the science and impacts of climate change and some of the many steps that the audience could take to reduce it.  We've also maintained a blog on The C-J's web site on climate topics.  It had to be taken down while I ran for office, but I presume to resume blogging in September, if not August.  

 

"Louisville CAN joined KySEA because evolving from inefficient use of dirty fossil fuels to efficient use of clean, renewable energy is imperative if we're to stop over-heating our planet and ruining the state we love; that doing so would also create much needed jobs throughout Kentucky and stabilize our economy makes it the elegant solution to a lot of problems."

As a result, PSHH has long-built highly energy efficient homes, helping the families they serve to thrive. PSHH has also recently built some of the first affordable homes in the region with renewable energy systems. Given that so many low-income KY families live in energy inefficient homes, combining affordability, efficiency and renewable energy is a recipe for success that benefits everyone.
