What is happening at the Federal and Washington State levels to address climate change, and how can you get involved? On Wednesday, March 13th, the Climate & Energy Forum will host a discussion about the new policy proposals underway and steps individuals can take.

In January, the Forum helped us understand the latest climate science and recent reports from organizations such as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Now, the forum will focus on local solutions and action. Beginning in March through June, join community members in a conversation about how we can do our part, both at the legislative level and on a personal level, to reduce our carbon emissions.

In this podcast, BCB host Christina Hulet sits down with forum presenters Brian Anderson of Climate Action Bainbridge and Mike Kelly of Citizens’ Climate Lobby. Together, they talk about this event, about the Green New Deal now being considered at the federal level, about several bills before the Washington State Legislature this session, and about some steps they’re personally taking to shrink the carbon footprint. You’ll also learn how you can add your input to the bills currently before the legislature.

So don’t miss the next Climate and Energy Forum: 7pm at the Good Egg on Wednesday, March 13th. For more information on the Climate and Energy Forum visit http://www.bainbridgeislandforum.org.
