CCL will hold program on what public can do about climate change
To the Editor:
NASA recently announced that 2015 was the warmest year globally since records began being kept in 1884. What is more alarming is that the 10 warmest years have all occurred since 1998.
Catastrophic events like the recent floods in Louisiana, droughts in the west and wildfires in California are becoming increasingly common.
The overwhelming majority of climate scientists agree that climate change is happening and that it is caused by human activity.
If you are concerned about the future and wonder what can be done to reduce global warming, attend a program titled “What You Can Do About Climate Change.” The program is being presented by the Stevens Point Chapter of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) and will take place at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 17, in the Pinery Room of the Portage County Public Library, 1001 Main St., Stevens Point.
Dan Dieterich, Wisconsin state coordinator for CCL and leader of the Stevens Point CCL Chapter, will review some of the impacts of climate change and describe what people can do individually and collectively to reduce those impacts. Admission is free.
