Panel Discussion on Federal Climate Action Plan

Sponsored by the National Wildlife Federation

On Thursday, September 26, numerous stakeholders from business, faith, labor, conservation, and community organizations, who are currently working on various facets of creating a clean energy economy, will gather in Petoskey, Michigan to discuss The President’s Climate Action Plan.

The Panel Discussion promises to be an extraordinary event dedicated to transforming ideas into action and building a revitalized, green economy that creates good jobs and preserves Michigan’s economic and environmental security. The meeting will include discussions by experts on Energy Efficiency, Preparedness, and Renewable Energy, Climate Science and safeguarding Michigan’s natural resources and wildlife. The panel discussion will be followed by a roundtable discussion.

What: On June 25, 2013 The President laid out his plan for tackling the climate crisis that is threatening our communities, natural resources, and our economy. In his plan, he laid out a vision that can put our country on a climate-resilient, low carbon path: What does the future hold if we are more efficient in our energy use? What if we invested in renewables and low carbon alternatives to power our homes and cars? What if we conserved critical ecosystems and improved our natural defenses against extreme weather? And what if we invested in strategies to help wildlife and habitat adapt to climate change? You are invited to join the discussion!
