June 29th — SVARW Meeting

Green Deal or Green Steal?
The Actual Science of Climate Change

The likes of AOC and Greta Thunberg are convinced that we must deal with climate change IMMEDIATELY as it presents an existential threat, with just a few years left on this earth if left untended. But is climate change reality or myth? And as we’re told to “trust the science”, what exactly does science tell us?

Join us for this fun and informative discussion where you’ll learn to separate truth from hyperbole. Is the earth heating or cooling since the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, how bad is this change compared to historical values, and what is causing the temperature change? What other trends do we see due to a changing climate? What are the real impacts on humanity? How many deaths have occurred due to changes in our environment?

We all learned how photosynthesis works in high school science; does it really make sense to pick on carbon dioxide? What is all this talk about greenhouse gas and should we really try to control it?

If we are serious about lowering our carbon footprint, what are the best forms of energy to meet our consumption needs? What are the pros and cons of solar energy? What are the true environmental impacts of electric cars?

What are the climate impacts and geopolitics of jumping into “green energy” too fast? Who gets the better grade as custodian of our environment – Trump or Biden? How have our energy foibles played into the hands of Russia?

And the biggest question of all. We hear a lot about the Green New Deal, but who gets the Green?

Dr. C. Michael Hogan, scientist and professor, received a PhD in physics from Stanford following a BS from Princeton University. He’s conducted ecological research in 31 different countries. Using his own independent research, he’s authored over 1220 scientific papers in a wide variety of fields of science, with an emphasis on environmental studies. Join us as we learn the true science of climate change!

August 20th –Stars and Stripes Celebration

Stars and Stripes Celebration

Early-Bird Tickets on Sale Now!

Taking Back Our Country—One School District at a Time!

After 16 months of the Brandon Administration, the 4-year reign of King Nuisance and a Marxist controlled Board of Supervisors; we all feel like we have lost our county, state and country. The only way we can actively take our country back is to begin at the very foundation level:  Our Local School Districts.

A majority vote by a school board can cancel the effects of horrible state-mandated curriculum.  School boards are the entry-level non-partisan seats that we can successfully elect conservatives to fill.  100 school board seats are up for election in our county this November and we are actively recruiting good candidates to fill these seats.

Join us at our 14th annual Stars and Stripes Celebration on August 20, 2022, and enjoy fun and fellowship with like-minded conservatives.  You will have an opportunity to meet our school board candidates and support their efforts to get elected in November.

We have managed to keep ticket prices the same as in 2021 and include valet parking in the price.   Early-bird ticket price in effect until June 30, 2022.

Taking place at the beautiful Saratoga Estate of Suzanna Cody and her husband Ron Hills, the evening begins as you are greeted with a glass of champagne and invited to enjoy appetizers.  As you meet and mingle with the other guests, take a stroll around the lovely surroundings.   Check out our fundraiser items! *.  Dinner will follow.  Wine and non-alcoholic beverages will be served.  Valet parking is included in the price of your ticket.

Top Three Questions

  1. Will I feel out of place if I don’t have a date? No! Many single people attend.
  2. Who should attend?  Conservatives that want to have fun!
  3. What should I wear? Over the years we have suggested “casual elegance”.
