The Environmental League of Massachusetts and The Union of Concerned Scientists hosted an emergency rally today, prompted by the devastation from super storm Sandy, about Climate Change and its inevitable impact on Boston. Congressman Edward Markey introduced panelist Mindy Lubber, Pres and CEO of Ceres, Kevin Knoboch, Pres. of the Union for Concerned Scientists, and Tufts University visiting professor of Engineering and Climate Management, Paul Kirshen.
Congess Markey set the tone saying “the human spirit is a fighting spirit” and by reminding us that sitting in that historic Faneuil Hall places us in the unique position that Bostonians have been in before; leading the way for innovation and change-even when faced with the daunting task of convincing government, business and our neighbors of the risks of climate change to our health, security and economy. Help us put Climate Change back on the National agenda by learning more about what you can do to help, get involved and protect the planet for future generations.
