WCC Climate Summit

On March 24, the Washtenaw Community College Political Science Club sponsored a Climate Change Summit.  It began with a brief introduction to some of the key concepts of climate change, presented by club vice president, Joe Chapman.  Joe’s presentation was followed by a panel discussion.  Due to a last minute conflict, scheduled speaker Representative Adam Zemke was unable to participate and Citizens’ Climate Lobby was invited to fill his spot.  Other panelists were Mariah Urueta of Food and Water Watch, Henry Griffin of Michigan League of Conservation Voters, and Emily Woodcock of Clean Water Action.  Panelists were asked questions on a variety of topics related to climate change and the environment, such as, What inspired you to become involved in environmental work?, What obstacles have you had to overcome in your work?, and How do you respond to climate skeptics?

Kudos to the WCC Political Science club for putting together a very thoughtful and informative event.joe2 joe3 joe
