2013 – The Year for Climate Action
State Senator Rob Hogg of Cedar Rapids
Iowa Senator Rob Hogg of Cedar Rapids will speak about the growing severity of climate change as a problem facing the United States and the world, and the need for climate action by people in Iowa and across the country. After the heat and drought of 2012, after the floods of recent years, and after climate disasters like Hurricane Sandy, it is time for climate action. Come learn about climate change and what you can do – as an individual, as a citizen, and as a member of PACG – to help the fight against climate change. Working together, we can make the changes we need to improve health, expand prosperity, and achieve sustainability in the 21st Century.
