Radnor’s Ready for 100–100% clean electricity by 2035 and 100% clean heating and transportation by 2050

For our June 28th program, we will hear from Dan Burnham from Central Baptist Church in Wayne. He joined the Radnor Township Ready for 100 Green Team at the invitation of Sara Pilling two years ago. Sara met him at Central Baptist when he gave a Sunday school presentation on plastics and recycling, and later on global warming and the carbon cycle.

On Radnor’s Green Team, Dan helped prepare the Request for Proposal for the township to hire an energy consulting firm. The hired firm, Practical Energy Solutions of West Chester, prepared a Renewable Energy and Conservation Plan for the township that was issued in Feb 2021. The plan is directed toward the Rf100 goals of 100% clean electricity by 2035 and 100% clean heating and transportation by 2050.
Dan’s presentation will summarize key points in the Renewable Energy and Conservation Plan, particularly what can be done by residential, business, institutional, and municipal sectors to conserve energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.  Key tactics will be building public commitment, promoting adoption of solar energy in particular and more electrical energy in general, and advocating for favorable state and municipal policies and laws.
There will be a time for questions after Dan’s program.

From 7:30-8:30pm, the following program will take place:

Main Line PA IPL welcomes Ana M. Negrón, MD, who presents Food Choices as she helps us explore and understand how foods derived from animals leave the heaviest footprint on our land and on our climate while severely taxing our health. We can change our dietary pattern to mostly whole plants which leaves no trash behind.
Ana will also instruct us on developing sustainable shopping habits to support our health and the planet’s health as well.

Board certified in family medicine, Ana M. Negrón, M.D. has made cooking with plants integral to her practice for almost two decades. By transitioning her patients to a whole foods plant-based lifestyle she helps reduce inflammation at the root of their illnesses.

Born and raised in Puerto Rico, bilingual Negrón has a solo nutrition practice near Philadelphia, volunteers at a free clinic for the uninsured, and teaches young physicians how a whole foods plant-based diet can prevent, help treat, and even reverse chronic disease.

Sunstone Press published her book, Nourishing the Body and Recovering Health: The Positive Science of Food—an antidote to our reliance on pharmaceuticals.
