For the first of our new General Meetings we have a speaker and topic of great import and interest- a bipartisan proposal for dealing with climate change. The general meetings are open to members, guests and the public.
Climate Solution for a Livable World:
There is hope for halting and even reversing climate change. At the end of November and after many years of volunteer lobbying, Citizens’ Climate Lobby’s straight forward policy solution has been incorporated into the bipartisanEnergy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (H.R. 7173, S.3791)
introduced in the House of Representatives. This solution will achieve the quick and effective results we need through empowerment of our market-based economy, nationally and globally.
Beginning with reviews of current climate conditions recently reported in major international and national reports, participants will hear about CCL’s solution, H.R. 7173 and what individuals and community organizations can do to help. A large majority of economists agree that this is the best approach to solving the climate crisis. Furthermore, predictions are that it will grow the economy, create jobs and address income disparity. At the end of this talk, participants will feel empowered to help, energized, and hopeful for a future stable climate.
Judy Gates, PhD, CCL volunteer speaker, recently retired from over 30 years of technology development experience in multiple industries. She was attracted to Citizens’ Climate Lobby because it shares her recognition that multiple viewpoints are needed to discover optimum solutions to complex problems.
Citizens’ Climate Lobby: CCLis a national grassroots nonprofit organization with the mission to create the political will for climate solutions by enabling individual breakthroughs in personal and political power. Its formal Advisory Board includes Ronald Reagan’s Secretary of State George Shultz, Climate Scientists Dr. James Hansen and Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, and Barack Obama’s Secretary of Energy Dr. Steven Chu among other climate science and policy experts. Our 90,000 volunteers cover the political spectrum, work in more than 400 local chapters and engage in respectful and appreciative interactions with legislators, regardless of their opinions.
