U was conceived pretty big. Of course we eventually had to scale things down. On this page you’ll find information about some of the things we were able to do, and some of the things we, sadly, didn’t have the time or money to make happen.
You’ve probably figured out that the postcard’s meant to be sent to the Honourable Rob Renner, Alberta’s Minister of the Environment, to let him know you’re concerned about climate change, and the way the province has been approaching the issue so far.
But what to write? Information and sources of information that may be helpful inspiration for composing your note to the Minister can be found elsewhere on this site (see #1 below). Check them out and see if any of them warm you up.
You can write anything you want – even that you applaud the government’s inaction – though of course we do hope that the postcards get used to press our government to get more serious about the issue.
Whatever you write, please keep it civil and respectful and remember, you do need to put a stamp on any mail to provincial representatives.
1. Check out the What Can You Do, Resources or Interviews pages of this website for ideas about what you might tell Environment Minister Rob Renner he ought to do about global warming.
2. Put the postcard on your fridge to remind yourself to come see U: The Comedy of Global Warming for ideas about what you might tell Environment Minister Rob Renner he ought to do about global warming.
3. If you already know about what Alberta’s doing to address the issue and how we can do better, write Environment Minister Rob Renner right now and let him know what you think he should be doing about global warming.
4. Give the postcard, or more copies of it, to friends so they can do any or all of the above.
