Goal of the week: Will you help us tell legislators to take action on climate change? We are holding a phone banking day on Thursday, June 15. You can join via facebook or RSVP form. Share this event with your family and friends to maximize our impact!
There are multiple bills introduced that could finally put a price on carbon in Washington State. It’s still a long shot to getting anything passed. Legislators tell us they do not hear enough from their own districts! Join now and make your voice heard. No one else will do this for us!
Current carbon tax bills: HB 1646, SB 5127, SB 5385, SB 5930. To read any of these bills, go to http://apps.leg.wa.gov/billinfo/, and search by bill number (for example “1646”). We will share more information about each of these bills through our email blast. Sign up to learn more.
If you’re looking for events: On Wed., May 31, attend Climate Science on Tap’s presentation of “Hell and High Water: Global Warming” at Peddler Brewing from 7:00 – 8:30 pm. Hear about sea level rises — their causes and impacts — throughout the Puget Sound. Hear from a fascinating panel that includes the director of the UW’s Program on Climate Change, specialists from Seattle Public Utilities, and environmental scientists from the Tulalip Tribes.
