We’ve been working with Assemblymember Phil Steck to set up his town hall on climate change and plans have been firmed up for Thursday May 16. from 6 to 8 pm at the Sand Creek Middle School Auditorium, 329 Sand Creek Road, Albany.
In addition to former EPA regional Administrator Judith Enck, the panel will include a highly motivated and articulate Bard College student, Tobias Hess, who is the leader of the Hudson Valley Hub of the Sunrise Movement. In my estimation, there is nothing ordinary about these young citizens, who are well-versed on the Green New Deal and support it without equivocation. Noreen Fisk and I heard Tobias, an attendee at the Citizens Climate Lobby Conference, speak off the cuff for several minutes on the Green New Deal and his involvement in the Sunrise Movement, which resulted in a standing ovation He represents the generation that will be most affected by climate change and deserves to be heard in the debate.
We are pleased to be working with Phil on this critical issue and to support this timely event to discuss the urgency and feasibility of becoming fossil fuel-free in the near future. We hope you will join us.
