The Sierra Club and other groups are organizing to fan out to stores in New Jersey and New York that sell LG products. Our goal: Urge customers to take LG's plan that would spoil the Palisades into account when they're making their next purchase of a new TV, cell phone, washer, refrigerator, or computer monitor. We'll also ask them to sign a new online petition.

In March 2013 Jeff Fisher and Jesper tried to climb Ojos del Salado on the border between Chile and Argentina. Unfortunately they had somehow offended the mountain gods and encountered a series of mishaps. In this presentation we will show slides from the trip and describe some of the many (mis)adventures encountered along the way before the final defeat.
