Climate Change Forum in Chevy Chase Tonight

Following is an announcement from the Town of Chevy Chase Climate Protection Committee detailing a forum in the town hall tonight on climate change.

Discussion and Desserts:
April 8, 7-9 PM,
Chevy Chase Town Hall
4301 Willow Lane
Chevy Chase, MD.

Many of us who are concerned about climate change are baffled and frustrated by the news we have read about what’s going on in Washington and at international meetings. Don’t you wish you could sit down with some experts and ask them your burning questions? One of the great benefits of living in Washington, DC is that many of the movers and shakers are our neighbors and this is certainly true in the case of climate change. The Climate Protection, Environment, and Community Relations Committees invite you to Discussion and Desserts with a panel of local experts on climate change:

· Charles Ebinger, Director of the Energy Security Initiative at the Brookings Institution;

· Juliet Eilperin, national environmental reporter for the Washington Post who writes the Post Carbon blog;

· Stephen Seidel, Vice President for Policy Analysis and General Counsel at the Pew Center on Global Climate Change; and

· Alexandra Teitz, Senior Counsel, Environment and Energy, Committee on Energy and Commerce, U.S. House of Representatives (Chairman Henry A. Waxman).

The session will be moderated by Charles Duffy, host of Political Pulse on MMTV, Channel 16. Each panelist will give a short opening statement and then the audience will take over with your questions and comments. Please come join us for a lively and provocative discussion. Questions: Call Warren Rizzi, 301-654-7144. Please come, invite your friends, and be prepared to ask challenging questions.
