What: Water, Wind & Fire: Saving our farms, forests, and fish while strengthening our economy
Date: Monday, November 13
Time: 7:00 pm
Location: Foundry Vinyards, 1111 Abadie St, Walla Walla
Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) and Audubon Washington volunteers supported by other local groups in the region are conducting the Water, Wind & Fire Tour – a 12-city tour around Washington state and the Idaho panhandle to engage citizens and community leaders in a conversation about the impacts of our changing climate, new energy ideas, and economic policies that mitigate climate and financial risk.
CCL & Audubon volunteers will visit Walla Walla on Monday, November 13 and speak at Foundry Vinyards about warming temperatures, their impact on Washington and Idaho citizens, and how we can move past partisanship to address the challenges of plentiful and affordable energy, a growing economy with lots of good jobs, and managing risk as a result of climate change.
Citizens’ Climate Lobby is a grassroots advocacy organization with over 340 chapters across the U.S. that generates political will to manage climate change risk. The group is non-partisan and works with members of Congress from both political parties to find and promote policy solutions to allow the market to find the most cost-effective ways to reduce emissions without growing government.
Audubon science confirms that climate change is the number one threat to birds. Using this non-partisan avian messenger, Audubon’s unparalleled grassroots network is taking action to reduce carbon pollution, promote renewable energy, and protect the places on the ground that birds need today and in the future. Audubon Washington is a field office of the National Audubon Society.
