Our November 26 Presentation:

Is It Worth the Carbon?

Your Decisions Matter to the World

In a world that is seeing increasing impacts due a changing climate, do our daily decisions make any difference?  The answer is they do.  What you do has a greater impact than you imagine.  Together, we’ll talk about why your actions matter and things that you can do to move the ball in the right direction.

Presented by Eric Shen

Eric Shen is a retired mechanical engineer who moved to Anacortes in 2004 from the Tri Cities (Richland) where he lived with his wife Betty Carteret for more than 27 years.  Since retiring, Eric has been involved in a number of volunteer projects in the community through the WSU Beach Watchers program and Transition Fidalgo & Friends, a local organization leading the way to a more sustainable and resilient community.
