EPA to hold public hearings on ‘climate endangerment’ in DC, Seattle
Photo: Corey McKrillThe U.S. EPA is holding two public hearings next week on the “climate endangerment” finding — one near Washington, D.C., on Monday and one in the other Washington, out here in Seattle on Thursday.
About a month ago, the EPA announced they had “determined that planet-warming greenhouse gases pose a danger to public health and welfare.” Now they’ve got to decide how to move forward with that information, and that’s about where y’all (Joe and Jane Public) come in.
So if you feel, um, endangered by climate change, and you’d like to make a comment about that — perhaps urging the EPA to take strong and swift action — make your way to Arlington, Va., on Monday or Seattle, Wash., on Thursday. But probably only if you can get there by foot, bike, or public transit because (have you heard?) greenhouse gases pose a danger to public health and welfare.
