The Climate Change Unit provides information and resources for effective engagement in climate solutions, through both personal actions and advocacy for large-scale policies. Participatory democracy is a powerful tool for addressing the scope of the climate crisis, and the challenges we face call on every one of us to take action.
We base our work on the LWVUS Position Statement on Climate Change, which supports “climate goals and policies that are consistent with the best available climate science and that will ensure a stable climate system for future generations. Individuals, communities, and governments must continue to address this issue."
The LWV-BMC is a community partner with the South Central Indiana chapter of Citizens' Climate Lobby, a nonpartisan organization which advocates for bipartisan climate solutions (such as federal permitting reform and carbon pricing) in order to reduce carbon emissions as quickly as possible. At the 2018 LWVUS Convention, delegates voted in support of putting a price on carbon.
We would love to hear from you, as climate solutions need an "all hands on deck" approach! You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
