Next Weekend: CCL Regional Conference

Finding common ground: inspiring, educating and collaborating around effective climate action

I’m pleased to share that next weekend, March 4th & 5th will be the 2017 Greater Pacific North West Regional Conference – and guess what… I will be a guest speaker!

Citizen’s Climate Lobby advocates for national carbon fee and dividend legislation. This conference will inspire attendees to build political will for a livable world.

I will be facilitating a workshop on social media: how we can increase our presence online and shape the argument to move the needle on climate issues.

What Megablazes Tell Us About the Fiery Future of Climate Change

“This is the present, and the future, of climate change. Our overheated world is amplifying drought and making megafire commonplace. This is happening even in the soggy Pacific Northwest, which has been hard-hit by what’s been dubbed a “wet drought.” Despite near-normal precipitation, warm winter temperatures brought rain instead of snow to the region’s mountains. What little snow did hit the ground then melted early, leaving the Northwest dry — and ready to burn in the heat of summer.”
