Lincoln Davis To Speak At Climate Change Rally

Sunday, November 10, 2013

Former U.S. Rep. Lincoln Davis will speak at a gathering of Organized For Action volunteers and concerned citizens at a climate change event in Chattanooga. This is one of over 100 events around the country as part of a national day of action. 

It will be at 11 a.m. at the Challenger Center at 855 E. 5th St.

He "will be speaking out in support of recent actions by the Obama administration to reduce carbon pollution by strengthening initiatives with regard to power plants."

Officials said, "Reducing carbon pollution from power plants is a common sense solution to significantly reduce our nation’s emissions, since power plants account for over 40% of the nation’s carbon pollution. U.S. Rep. Davis, having served on the House Appropriations subcommittee for Energy & Water and the House Science & Technology subcommittee for Energy & Environment, will be speaking about the urgency of climate change and the importance of our nation to embrace the EPA initiatives as a first step to avert climate change."
