Climate change solutions in Prince William, VA
Join the Citizens’ Climate Lobby Prince William Chapter
Spring is on the way and it is time for us to warm up members about political action to curb climate change! 70% of the people in Prince William County are concerned about climate change! Which means we do not have to convince climate change deniers as much as we need to get believers to take actions.
We will have tabling events at two wonderful venues coming up.
The first is on Saturday, April 11 from 10 am to 4 pm at Merrimac Farms. This is the Annual Bluebell Festival and there will be other environment/nature loving organizations at this event. I have been told that last year it attracted around 1,000 people. If you have never seen the bluebells in April, this is a sight to be experienced!

The second is on Saturday, April 18 from 11 am to 3 pm at the Stonebridge Shopping Center. REI is sponsoring a 50 Anniversary Earth Day celebration in the green space. Other organizations who are participating are Mason Neck State Park, Prince William County Solid Waste Division, and Subaru. There will also be a climbing wall and an exclusive screening of a documentary titled “Pretty Strong” which is about female climbers. Their focus is to provide education, activities, and inspiration to motivate attendees to do their part in their everyday lives to take proper care of the Earth.

We can spread information about market-based Carbon Fee and Dividend policy that will drastically reduce emissions, create jobs, and support small businesses and families — all without growing government.
We’ve seen firsthand how passionate citizens who are well-trained, organized by district and with a good system of support can more than influence the political process.
