SHELBURNE All Souls Interfaith Gathering is sponsoring a four-part Speaker Series on the subject Voices for the Environment, beginning with a lecture on Tuesday, Feb. 5 by Wes Sanders of Vermont Interfaith Power & Light entitled Low Carbon Diet: What Every Household Can Do To Combat Climate Change. Wes Sanders, Vice President of the Vermont chapter of a national not-for-profit organization called Interfaith Power and Light, which is dedicated to arresting Global Warming thru energy-efficiency, will offer a presentation and Q & A workshop on CO2-reducing tool called the "Low Carbon Diet" (pun intended).
