Please join me in raising funds for Cool Planet MN and The Science Council for Global Initiatives as I ski the 23k race at the Birkebeiner!
Thank you for helping me work to solve the climate crisis by pledging me as I ski with the Cool Planet Skier Team at the American Birkebeiner on Feb 23. My event is the 23k Kortelopet. Please consider donating $23, but any amount is welcome. It's been 20 yrs since I was last in a xc ski race, and I'm thrilled to get back to it now while supporting the good work of these two organizations. Cool Planet MN works to inspire citizens to action in many ways to slow the climate crisis. The Science Council for Global Initiatives works to put an end to the fossil fuel era and to slow climate change by promoting development of alternative energy technologies, the most important of which is a type of nuclear reactor called the Integral Fast Reactor (IFR). Even after maximizing efficiency and conservation, solar and wind power can never scale up enough to satisfy the growing global demand for energy. New nuclear power must be in the new energy mix.
