The Vermont Legislature's Climate Solutions Caucus is hosting a series of forums around the state to outline its priorities for the 2020 legislative session and seek input from Vermonters on the solutions they'd like to see advanced. State representatives Emilie Kornheiser, D-Windham 2-1, and Mollie Burke, P-Windham 2-2, invite everyone to join the Windham County Delegation for one of the events in this series on Tuesday at 7 p.m. at St Michael's Episcopal Church, 16 Bradley Ave. "Everyone - including every state and nation - has a role to play in addressing this challenge as soon as possible. Vermont is no different," said state Sen. Majority Leader, Becca Balint, D-Windham District. "These events are intended to focus attention on this critical issue, present practical solutions, and help set the stage for continued action. We look forward to connecting with as many people as possible to share our ideas on the solutions we think will begin to meet that obligation, as well as bring real economic and public benefits to all Vermonters." A series of recent reports from the world's leading scientists at the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change as well as the U.S. federal government in its 2018 National Climate Assessment made clear that dramatic action is required in the next decade to radically reduce fossil fuel use and mitigate the worst, far-reaching effects of a warming world, including serious impacts to human health, ecosystems and economies. "Vermonters want us to do our part on this pressing issue," Kornheiser said in a statement. "They also recognize that taking action can also save people a lot of money, improve public health and put people to work in the clean energy economy. We have to get serious, and we look forward to working with as many Vermonters as possible to do that in a way that really benefits everyone in our state."
