Last year was the hottest year on record. Until this year. And next year will be even hotter.
This November, our election cycle will come and go, but climate change will remain a growing threat. Our mission at PennEnvironment is to continue to highlight the urgent work that can be done on environmental issues before, during, and after elections. As such, we are hosting a “Climate Solutions Expo” for Montgomery County on March 26th, co-sponsored by Haverford College.
The goal of this event is to engage new members of our community, hear about concrete cases of how we can take action to confront climate change, and participate in tangible tactics that leverage science and research to promote thoughtful public policy and make a difference. As PennEnvironment is an advocacy organization, we use many of these tactics every day – such as writing Letters to the Editor, calling elected officials, petitioning campaigns, recording videos, lobbying, and more.
Climate change is already threatening Montgomery County, causing worsening flooding, higher rates of insect-borne disease, and increasing heat-induced mortality. Yet we also have the people and the potential to stand up for our health, our pocketbooks, and our planet. We hope you’ll join us, and be a part of the solution!
