Washington State Climate Action Hearings
NOTE: The state changed the date of the Olympia Climate, Legislative, Executive Working Group hearing from. The mailer from Sierra Club you may have received is incorrect due to this change. Please note your calendars!
The Governor and state legislators are inviting the public to help design our state's roadmap to reduce climate pollution. We all know climate pollution is warming our planet putting Washington at greater risk for extreme drought and wildfires, raising acidity levels in our oceans threatening our lucrative fishing industries and inreasing our risk to flooding and superstorms.
The Climate Legislative Executive Workgroup (CLEW) is developing recommendations for how Washington can reduce its carbon pollution. This is the time to speak up and demand strong action on climate disruption!
One of the biggest things Washington can do to reduce our carbon footprint is to retire our coal fired power. The state's largest private utility, Puget Sound Energy, gets about 30% of its electricity from coal power. Replacing this dirty coal power with clean energy will create jobs and benefit our economy, in addition to dramatically reducing our carbon pollution impact.
Reserve your spot and a yellow Beyond Coal t-shirt and do your part to halt climate disruption. RSVP now.
WHO: Friends, family, neighbors, Sierra Club and you!
