On Friday, December 3, members of PA Bloomsburg and Pottsville met with Blake Deeley, Rep. Meuser’s Legislative Director, to discuss climate change, the Growing Climate Solutions Act, and the benefits of “fee and dividend” as a means to lowering emissions. It was a very productive meeting and we’re grateful for the opportunity!
Now at the halfway point of 2021, the Bloomburg Chapter of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby is able to look back on some interesting experiences and achievements. A few of these include:
Meetings held with the Bloomsburg Town Council, the Columbia-Montour Chamber of Commerce, the Montour Area Recreation Commission, and the Danville Borough Council, as well as a municipal resolution in favor of carbon pricing passed in Bloomsburg.
Endorsements received from the Bloomsburg University Economics Department and members of the Bloomsburg Ministerium.
Presentations delivered to the students of the Bloomsburg University Communication Studies Department and members of the Fishing Creek Watershed Association.
Six letters to the editor published in the Bloomsburg Press-Enterprise.
And one meeting (so far) with staffers from Rep. Meuser’s office.
In the second half of the year, we hope to build on these initial successes, with new contributions from both town and university contingents. We also hope to resume in-person meetings. If you would like to join BloomCCL, simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are proud to present this short pamphlet, “A Brief Introduction to Climate Change,” in the hope of explaining where we stand in clear, concise terms. Please download, read, and share!
