I think we should speak in a language that appeals to the broadest coalition of Pennsylvanians. Like that adage says, "Keep It Simple, Silly." Perhaps a slogan -- rather, different slogans -- will amass this appeal. For example, combine into a slogan... popular themes among participants of the study (i.e. COVID): "No time for corruption in a time of COVID." "Better together: End COVID and End Corruption, too." Or "Better Together: Ban Corruption and Ban COVID, too."

At 8:30 p.m. (20:30 hours) I'll observe Earth Hour 2022. That means lights out for an hour -- or keep the lights off for another hour. I don't have candles, but I have flashlights and portable lights. (Apart from my main flashlight, I'll work on emergency lighting powered by reusable batteries or solar energy next time.)
Otherwise, I'm working an extra 10 hours today -- my first bout of overtime this year. The money won't be for turning up though. During an emergency last year, I lived off my retirement for several months. I'm making some last-minute contributions to it before April 15 (or whenever the tax-filing deadline).
Obviously, I'm not participating in an event for Earth Hour this year. However, an event I added to my bucket list in 2020 is fitting for Earth Hour next year. Therefore, I'll hold off on that item one more year.
Hint: Cherry Springs State Park -- I'm coming in 2023, if not before!
I didn't know there was a difference in energy consumption by front-end and top-over washers and dryers. Also, there are reusable bags specifically for produce. The Earth Hour website provides other easy-to-read tips on lifestyle changes that reduce human pollution, retail waste, and household energy at www.earthhour.org/take-part/beyond-the-hour.
Maybe you'll enjoy it as well!
Earth Hour is an annual act of solidarity to highlight the appreciation of people for their planet.

Congrats, GPPA, on the co-sponsorship. This could be one opportunity for the party to raise its statewide profile. If so, the GPPA and candidates might declare (or tagline) public support for 2030 as the deadline for net-neutral or carbon-free emissions.
Weeks before the 2020 election, I learned from the Howie Hawkins campaign -- then the Green Party presidential candidate -- that 2030 is the projected year that Earth's average temperature warms by at least 1.5 Celsius. It's why I reversed course from my support of the Paris Agreement, whose signatories have committed to 2050 as the deadline to net-neutralize greenhouse gas emissions -- particularly, CO2.
(See Electoral Politics, II (Q3), which references the period of my 2020 interview by The Washington Post rather than its publication in Q4. Also see Black Voters, II (Q4). Both are below.)
In addition, the state party might volunteer -- at scale -- for a high-contact committee i.e. the Events, March, Media, or Outreach Committees. Even if members don green shirts while collecting garbage and plastic water bottles, I believe the party will make a lasting impression ahead of the general election. #PAClimateConvergence
Attendance was good last night -- our largest little crowd yet! Looking forward to the next meeting in April and any initiatives or positions members would like Capital Area Greens to consider.
Christina "PK" Diguilio -- Green candidate for governor -- was also in attendance. The former analytical chemist shared her testimony on BIPARTISAN BRIBERY, as well as her technical expertise and watchdog advocacy concerning industrial contamination on public health, preservation of the state's natural resources, and more.
For now, please reach out to the Green Party of Pennsylvania (https://facebook.com/gpofpa) to volunteer for PK's campaign or to help collect the 5,000 signatures needed to exercise our voting rights on a MULTIPARTY BALLOT.
