As an individual, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by climate change. And if you’re waiting for elected officials to address the dangers of climate change, it’s easy to feel frustrated. But, now you’ve got a chance to help formulate policy that will ultimately combat climate change. This Saturday, Sacramento-area elected officials are listening to the public’s ideas about combating and adapting to climate change in a town hall meeting at Met High School. Each person will get two minutes to share his or her ideas for creating a climate action plan for the region.
Joining us to talk more about the town hall meeting is Erik de Kok, principal planner for the Sacramento Climate Action Plan, and Mark Hertsgaard, author of “HOT: Living Through the Next 50 Years on Earth. Both will be at the town hall meeting Saturday.
