What: Letter-writing workshop, climate change film, planning session

When: 1:30 p.m. letter-writing; 2:30 p.m. film; 3:30 p.m. film discussion; 4 p.m. planning session for Sept. 21 Davis Climate Action event in Central Park

Where: Blanchard Room, Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St., Davis

Public comments on the Valero crude-by-rail project in Benicia — bringing two trains each more than a mile long of highly explosive Bakken or toxic tar sands crude through Davis daily — are due Sept. 15 to the Benicia Planning Commission.

Concerned Davis residents can attend a final workshop at 1:30 p.m. Sunday in the Blanchard Room at the Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St. in Davis. There, they’ll receive helpful tools for writing their letter — a letter template, resources and sample letters. Every letter becomes part of the written document and all issues raised must be addressed in the final environmental impact report.

There is still time to voice concerns. Letters should be sent to Amy Million at [email protected]

Yolano Climate Action also has petitions on which signatures concerning the EIR can be collected over the next two weeks.

Comments are due by Sept. 30 for the federal Department of Transportation rule-making proposals regarding crude-by-rail safety. Participants at Saturday’s workshop can pick up a ForestEthics petition to gather signatures and learn about the DOT document.

At 2:30 p.m. Sunday, the community is invited to a premier free screening of “Disruption. Climate. Change,” an hourlong documentary film about climate change — the science, the politics and the movement — featuring James Hanson, Naomi Klein, Bill McKibben and many more.

“When it comes to climate change, why do we do so little when we know so much?” the film asks. “Disruption …” takes an unflinching look at the devastating consequences of inaction.

The film takes viewers behind the scenes of the efforts to organize the largest climate rally in the history of the planet during the upcoming United Nations world climate summit on Sept. 21.
