The Mt. Pleasant Citizens’ Climate Lobby and Climate Education will hold a meeting from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 13, in room 203 of Brooks Hall on the Central Michigan University campus. Parking is free.
Anthony Chappaz, CMU professor of geochemistry and director of STARLAB, will host the meeting. Attendees will learn about his research as well as watch the lobby’s national guest video speaker, Bob Inglis. A member of CCL’s advisory board and the governing board of Citizens’ Climate Education, Inglis served as a Republican congressman from South Carolina from 1993 to 1999, and again from 2005 to 2011. During his tenure, Inglis introduced the Raise Wages, Cut Carbon Act, a revenue-neutral carbon tax. After leaving congress, he started republicen.org, an organization devoted to persuading conservatives to address climate change with market-based solutions.
Other business will include the March 21 collaboration with CMU on the Central Michigan Climate Solutions Summit, a national Instagram “snowman protest” contest, and other outreach actions. Check MtPleasantCitizensClimateLobby.org or its Facebook page for map.
