Linda - the flow
1. What is climate change?
a. Climate change with hockey stick.
b. Picturegraph showing what’s happening
2. What can we do about it?
a. Paris why 1.5 not 2 degrees

3. HR 763
a. What it is
c. Vote to make your voice heard.
4. Naked egg experiment – maybe have Zion do this?
Ideas to pull it together
a. Put all the graphics in a power point
b. Conversation between 2 people - Chuck suggested 2 young women from his church.
c. Turn those 2 pieces into a video
Yard sign contest – SUE – change to sign could go in a window, it could be virtual only, post on website. Elly's wild thought just now - can we use it as a fund raiser? We make the signs/yard signs/t-shirts and see them via the website? Don't know what is required.
John is putting up prize money - 1st prize $300, 2nd $200, 3rd $100. Prize monies goes to the class of the winners to do whatever. All kids get a certificate
Biodegradable yard signs???
Judges: Sue, Linda, Nancy, Ana Lia or Jason, SAMI – students or a teacher
Judging idea: Nancy suggests we email our CCL membership list to find a judge for the poster board, Barbara – need some legitimacy? Not just anyone. Chuck suggested Jason Lee Teacher?
EV event in Steilacoom, day before Oceanfest. Tabling in person seems like. John and Chuck will table.
2 – 3 minutes for Ocean Fest
1. Kid friendly: Intro to climate change, what it is – the problem, what we care about, ocean acidification
2. Science board with graphics on
a. effects of climate change
b. Climate change indicators
c. Other ideas?
3. HR 763 - simple graphic: Does Oceanfest allow bill promotion?
a. Maybe the short CCL video here? Suspect too long but leads right into voting to make your voice heard
4. Vote -
5. Video Kim Cobb on coral with link
6. Ocean acidification: Experiment to dissolve egg shells
7. Write to your representative – link?
8. Monthly call link:
John’s contest, prize – do we want it to be a yard sign contest – art, poem, slogan
Share a visual of a yard sign with a starting design, the size, and options.
I like that one too! It's got science for the adults, and cartoons for the kids!
Here’s another clip to try
Egg is naked in 2 days of immersion in vinegar. I was not careful enough to see exactly when the whole shell was gone. The egg also becomes enlarged as water crosses the membrane. The egg in club soda still has bubbles on it, but I'm not seeing any real change. I'm just going to let it sit. I may try some sea water and see what that does, suspect it's also very slow to thin the shell. I may try and test to see if you can tell that it is acidic.
I'm good with it. I'm doing the experiment now, put an egg in vinegar yesterday at 7 pm, it's not quite naked yet, so it takes more than 24 hours. The shell is thin enought that I see the yolk. Also put an egg in club soda, that isn't doing anything visible, just some bubbles on the surface. I'll post how long it takes to get to the naked egg in the next day or so. Then we can figure out how to film. Sorry, did not take pictures at this point in time.
Update on Videographer, Prize Money & DIY Activity
Unfortunately Sam does not have the time right now to film our video. We could see if Rosemary still has a spot left to film, but our 'actors' would have to be masked, which is not an ideal way to present in a video, in fact Sam said he wouldn't do it. Rosemary did say that she could help publicize John's contest, which would be great! She also said that nobody else has claimed the egg shell demonstration, so we can go full steam ahead on that! So, that leaves us with doing our own filming, which is doable. What are your thoughts?
I do agree with Barbara. Here's another kid-friendly and more scientific video on the subject https://youtu.be/6SMWGV-DBnk
Ok, I watched the 2 min CCL video. Would have to cut a lot and decide who the audience is.
Also watched the 'woman in yellow on blue background' video (11 min). A little stiff and dry, not good camera work to see the results of experiments. Here's a link for a following video I spotted - 2 min cartoon video of Hermie, the hermit crab trying to keep a shell on him (of course). More entertaining and short - again depends on what audience we're aiming for. Adults would get the idea as well with a cartoon as younger people.
