Seattle Climate Action Day

Tell your Washington friends to come out for Climate Action day on August 7 at noon at the Washington State Trade and Convention Center. If you want to participate in the rally, show up at the convention center at around 11:45 am. Bring signs, friends, and the kids.
There will be a full lineup of speakers -- high school and college leaders, faith leaders, and climate activists -- to let you know more about the issue and explain how you can help. There will be a hospitality suite on-site to provide you with facts, tools and fun things for kids. This is a safe and legal activity for kids and adults. These kinds of events attract a lot of media attention and helps push our public officials in the right direction!Be part of the solution: demand the strongest climate protection standards for Washington State and for our future.
Want more? 9 AM-5 PM -- You can sit in on the Governor's Climate Advisory Team's meeting, where they'll discuss priority recommendations for WA to reduce carbon emissions.
8 AM-5 PM -- Climate Action Community Room: we will provide info for the public on our Cool State clean energy solutions that will help bring WA to an 80% carbon reduction by 2050. We'll collect your written, video, and photo comments here! Learn how to a letter to your local paper. Enjoy tasty snacks!
4 PM--Public Comment Period: Opportunity to give oral testimony to the Climate Advisory Team. Time is limited, but filling the room with people wearing our "clean energy supporter" badges will set the tone for the CAT members!

The Sierra Club Cascade Chapter's Cool State Campaign is working to ensure that Washington commits to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050. By making smart energy and transportation choices, we can reduce greenhouse gas emissions, increase mobility choices, save money for people and for government, reduce air and water pollution, and improve the health of our citizens and our communities. In doing this, we will create the foundation for a more prosperous, humane and equitable Washington. The Sierra Club's Cool State Campaign focuses on action by individuals, businesses and government at all levels. We encourage cities to sign and implement the Mayor's Climate Protection Initiative. We expect our Governor and Legislature to commit to firm greenhouse gas reduction targets and specific actions. And we are working to reform regional transportation policy to shift from the failed auto-centric policies of the past to proven strategies that provide clean affordable mobility to all citizens.
