McCollum To Host Climate Change Town Hall on Feb. 23

Feb 10, 2017 Issues: Environment

Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) will hold a town hall discussion on climate change on Thursday, Feb. 23 on the campus of the University of St. Thomas. The town hall, which will include St. Thomas School of Engineering Professor Dr. John Abraham as a special guest, will address how we can continue acting on climate change in the face of the Trump administration’s anti-science, pro-fossil fuel stance.

“President Donald Trump has called climate change a ‘hoax’ perpetrated by the Chinese and the Republican Congress wants to tear up environmental protections like the Clean Power Plan,” Congresswoman McCollum said. “Our discussion will focus on what we all can do to act on climate change and protect our planet from its most devastating impacts.”
