Wed, August 1, 7 pm, Lecture: "Myth-Busting the Tar Sands",

Ann Alexander, Senior Attorney with the Natural Resource’s Defense Council’s Chicago office, will unpack some of the myths that pervade discussions of the Canadian tar sands, frequently promoted as a safe and secure source of energy for the U.S. She will address the economic impact of tar sands importation as well as its environmental impacts, both from extraction in Canada and refining in the Midwest and the Gulf Coast.

Rainfall report: We received over 2-1/2 inches on the east side of Glen Ellyn. What did you get?

Tree watering: Despite the recent rains, heat will return. We can watch our trees and keep them hydrated while being mindful of watering restrictions. Glen Ellyn, for example, seems poised to begin enforcing its watering regulations.
