February and March were busy months for our chapter, featuring meetings with the Columbia-Montour Chamber of Commerce, the Montour Area Recreation Commission, several student groups on campus, and staffers from Rep. Meuser’s office. After a productive meeting with the Bloomsburg Ministerium, we received an endorsement signed by representatives from six local congregations, demonstrating that local religious bodies are on board for carbon pricing. The full statement is available here.
Our third letter of 2021 appeared in the Bloomsburg Press-Enterprise on Friday, March 19. To learn more about the mechanism of “carbon fee and dividend,” visit the Citizen’s Climate Lobby explainer.
