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.

“What’s Columbia County doing about climate action?”
“How can town governments get anything done when people are so divided?”
“Is it worth even trying? (Isn’t it a losing battle?)”

Good questions! So instead of our usual agenda, for the next couple of months CCL Columbia County is bringing in some local non-CCL leaders to tell us what’s happening in various towns. First up, next Monday, August 10, will be Tistrya Houghtling, New Lebanon Town Supervisor (Democrat) and Phil Bickerton, Kinderhook Town Councilman (Republican). Both of their towns have become Climate Smart Communities: How did Democrats and Republicans work together on that? What Climate-Smart steps are they planning? How does climate action fit in with other town priorities?

Please join us for this conversation on Monday, August 10, at 5 pm via Zoom:
