Join us for  Climate Emergency: Montgomery County Responds: A Town Hall focused on Cutting Greenhouse Gases Now

WHEN: Saturday, September 14, 2019, 11:00 am to 1:30 PM

WHERE: Silver Spring Civic Center, 1 Veteran’s Plaza, Silver Spring, MD 20910

Global warming has drastically changed our earth, and scientists predict widespread catastrophe if we don’t dramatically curb greenhouse gas emissions. In December 2017, the Montgomery County Council adopted Resolution 18-974, declaring a climate emergency and pledging to reduce the County’s greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent by 2027, and by 100 percent by 2035.

Meeting these goals will require radical changes in energy use, transportation and consumption — and tremendous effort from all county residents. Get involved! Learn what you can do. And hear about what progress has been made so far.
