Governor's Task Force on Climate Change public input opportunities

Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes is heading up the Governor's Task Force on Climate Change. On the group's welcome page, he summarizes their goals and scope:

We are charting a path to meet our goal of 100% carbon-free energy by 2050, while improving the state's economy and environment, diversifying the resources used to meet the state's energy needs, and generating family-supporting jobs. 

And throughout this work, we are maintaining a lens of environmental justice, so that communities of color and low-income communities—who too often experience the first and worst consequences of climate change—are part of the conversation and the solution. 

There are ways for the public to be involved including some online public listening sessions beginning June 23 and opportunities to listen in on sub-committee meetings.
