Carbon Dioxide Emission Inventory for a House of Worship with Chuck Marshall

For our February 28th program, Chuck Marshall of the Central Baptist Church in Wayne, PA presents how his church did an emission inventory of carbon dioxide as a baseline for measuring the effectiveness of future programs to control carbon dioxide emissions. Included in the emission inventory are vehicular emissions which can be equal to or exceed carbon dioxide emissions from stationary sources such as buildings. Potential emission reductions from measures to reduce or offset carbon dioxide emissions can then be evaluated and goals established for programs such as getting to zero carbon emissions.

Chuck Marshall was an environmental scientist for many years and worked for an environmental consulting firm doing projects for U.S. EPA and OSHA. He was responsible for obtaining grants for solar panels at his church, Central Baptist Church of Wayne, PA. He also managed his church’s program for getting to zero emissions by reducing and offsetting emissions. Chuck was an original board member for PA IPL and a co-founder of the Main Line Chapter of PA IPL. In Drexel University’s Environmental Management program where he obtained a masters degree, he was part of a team of graduate students who developed an emission inventory of the Philadelphia Airport.

Renewable Energy & The National Environmental Energy Standard with JEA

Part of PA IPL’s Ongoing Partnership with Jewish Earth Alliance

Speakers: Odette Mucha, Mid-Atlantic Regulatory Director and Federal Liaison Vote Solarand
An inspirational spiritual speaker.

Jewish Earth Alliance and PA Interfaith Power & Light are co-sponsoring this informational and motivational meeting on Wednesday, September 1 at 7:30pm.

The US still gets 60% of its electricity from fossil fuels. Electrical generation is a major source of carbon emissions, second only to transportation. To avert the worst effects of climate change we need to use 100% clean renewable energy such as from solar or wind. A federal Clean Energy Standards (CES) would mandate progress toward the use of renewables for the entire country, which would be a tremendous step toward eliminating the greenhouse gas emissions causing climate change.

Democrats are aiming to pass a budget under the rules of reconciliation, offering another opportunity to remediate the climate crisis. Their proposed $3.5 trillion budget includes CES, and other climate solutions such as electric car incentives and energy efficient buildings. Members of Congress need to hear our call for comprehensive CES that accelerates the transition to renewable energy, with justice for communities harmed by fossil fuel.
