CLIMATE CHANGE: Iowans Demand Action | Community Spirit
Scientists are coming to a consensus that man-made acceleration of climate change is real, the issue also got a mention in the President’s State of the Union Address after being absent from the Presidential debates.
Now, Iowans across the state want action on the issue.
Residents will deliver letters to Congressional offices in at least 10 cities on Friday from Fort Dodge to Council Bluffs.
“After billions of dollars in climate-related disasters just in Iowa, we need Congress to take action this year,” said State Senator Rob Hogg of Cedar Rapids, one of the coordinators of this event. “A do-something Congress would do something about climate change. This matters to all Iowans.”
The events are being held in conjunction with the “Forward on Climate” Rally in Washington, DC, on Sunday, February 17th.
Details for each event are as follows:
Des Moines – 9:00 a.m.
