Inconvenient Truth Meetings?

Are there any meetings happening in Palo Alto to discuss how we can support each other in reducing our CO2 emissions? Al Gore's movie An Inconvenient Truth may be preaching to the choir, but has the choir changed its light bulbs yet? Have we given up our SUVs? Have we written letters to politicians to insist on legistlation that will reduce CO2 emissions - adding our voices toggether until we can no longer be ignored? Have we installed solar panels to power our homes? Are we still booking long plane flights without serious consideration to the impact this makes on CO2 emissions.
There are so many things we can do to reduce our CO2 emissions, large and small, but is it hard to be good even we can sing Al's song.
I believe it would help if people in the community met once a month to support and encourage one another in finding do-able activities that would reduce our CO2 emissions. I'm afraid that the farther we get from the movie theater, the farther away these concerns become. Ongoing meetings would keep us actively involved in working on solutions.
