Moving Forward on Climate Town Hall Series: Fossil Fuel Pollution
Tuesday, April 23, 2013 from 6:45 PM to 8:45 PM (PDT)
The tragedy of Hurricane Sandy impacted millions of people across the state, from coastal storm surges to wide spread power outages. As we rebuild in the wake of the storm we need to take action to address and prevent the future impacts of climate change. Hurricane Sandy was the latest storm in an increasing trend of more extreme and severe weather- we cannot wait any longer.
Join 350 NJ, Climate Mama, and Sierra Club for an important town hall meeting focusing on ways to address the climate crisis by reducing our fossil fuel dependence. Cutting greenhouse gas emissions from dirty fuel sources is critical to protecting New Jersey from future flooding, storm surges, and other climate change impacts. A panel of experts will discuss fossil fuel projects in our state, their impacts, and ways to reduce that pollution.
The town hall will also be a time to share how climate change has impacted you. Hear from local families and people directly impacted by climate change. You are invited to share your experiences as well.
