Climate change solutions in Columbia County, NY

Join the Citizens’ Climate Lobby Columbia County Chapter

Rural county, Hudson Valley, 2 hours north of NYC, 1 hour south of Albany CD:NY-19 zip: 12075, New York
Some of us at the Northeast Regional Conference!

We are a chapter with lots going on: presentations, tabling at local events, a youth education team, regular lobby meetings with our congressional representative, Antonio Delgado, and U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, ongoing lobbying in our state legislature, and twice-a-year lobbying in Washington D.C.
We meet monthly, usually on the Monday after the monthly International Call.

This is an exciting time for us in Citizens’ Climate Lobby, when our carbon dividend bill (the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act) continues to pick up cosponsors in the House of Representatives and several other carbon pricing bills have been introduced in both houses of Congress by both Democrats and Republicans. Slowly –- too slowly, to be sure — we are seeing political movement on climate issues from both sides of the aisle.

     After checking in with each other, we will first watch parts of a talk by CCL's May guest speaker, Dr. Natasha DeJarnett (from the National Environmental Health Association).  We know that climate change and carbon pollution have an impact on public health, as the COVID-19 pandemic bears out. Dr. Natasha DeJarnett will look at how these two crises are connected.
We will share our experiences and information about what is happening right now in the broader climate movement, the connections we are making, and the insights arising from contacts with our many climate allies.
We will also discuss our CCL June virtual conference and lobby day, which will bring thousands of CCL climate activists together to learn together and work together.
          More than ever before, we need to join together in fellowship to work on solving our climate crisis.  Please join us on Zoom on Monday!
