Just two weeks ago, Texas’ state climatologist linked the floods that killed 15 people in the state to climate change. In California, droughts are devastating crops and creating a drinking water crisis.
Unfortunately, Pennsylvania is a big part of the problem. Our power plants put out the same amount of global warming pollution as Chile. And we have a natural gas problem. Our fracking wells and infrastructure leak methane, which pound for pound, has a 25 times greater impact on climate change than CO2. Together, we could soon change that.
On June 30th we’re holding a town hall with Congressman Brendan Boyle in Jenkintown, PA with health experts and faith leaders to discuss local impacts from climate change and how we can finally slash power plant pollution.
Can you make it?
WHAT: Southeastern PA Climate Change Town Hall Meeting with Congressman Brendan Boyle
WHEN: Tuesday, June 30, 2015 at 6:30 – 8:00 PM
WHERE: Episcopal Church of Our Savior, 821 Homestead Road, Jenkintown PA 19046
WHO: Local officials, public health experts, faith leaders, and you
In the coming months, the EPA will finalize the first ever limits on global warming pollution from power plants. But the coal industry isn’t taking it lying down.
They’ve joined with Majority Leader McConnell to halt any action on climate change—all so they can dig more coal out of the ground despite the threat to our planet.
Learn more about what’s going on from Congressman Boyle, who has been in the midst of fighting climate change in DC.
