WHAT: A presentation to organize and launch the Lawrence chapter of Citizens Climate Lobby.

WHO: Mark Reynolds, executive director of Citizens Climate Lobby, will lead the presentation/training to give concerned citizens the tools they need to make their voices heard by decision-makers in Washington. Lynate Pettengill will lead the Lawrence group.

WHY: As the saying goes, everyone talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it. Likewise, many people talk about the looming disaster of climate change, but few are working to enact policies to reduce the greenhouse gases causing the problem. We need a national policy to put a price on carbon that will speed the transition to a clean-energy economy. The political will for such a policy is currently lacking. Therefore, it is time for citizens to reclaim their democracy and overcome the powerful influence of the fossil fuel industry. We must do this to secure a safe and sustainable future for our children and our grandchildren. Learn more about Citizens Climate Lobby at www.CitizensClimateLobby.org .
