CLIMATE WEEK: SEPTEMBER 20-26, 2021
September 20-26, 2021, is Climate Week in Pennsylvania, and the bicameral, bipartisan Pennsylvania Legislative Climate Caucus is pleased to share this list of events, legislative actions, and resources around the need for climate action in Pennsylvania and throughout the United States.
Climate Week Schedule of Events
Climate change is the most serious and immediate environmental threat confronting Pennsylvania, the United States, and the world. The time for climate action is now. Good climate policy is good economic policy, and climate legislation that protects our environment and our current and future generations can also help us support Pennsylvania’s workforce, build stronger, healthier communities, and advance Pennsylvania’s economic goals.
The Legislative Climate Caucus convenes to research, evaluate, discuss, and raise awareness about legislation, appropriations and related matters in ways that affirm evidence-based, peer-reviewed science, the acceptance that climate change is real and human-made, the importance of environmental justice, and the necessity for a renewable energy future. Further, the Climate Caucus operates to uphold the charge of environmental stewardship as laid bare in Article I, Section 27 of the Pennsylvania Constitution.
