Climate Action Summit

Heather Harr - 2019 Climate Action Summit

Climate change is not just an environmental issue. It is already having impacts on our public health, our economy, our politics, and nearly every aspect of our lives – and those impacts will only accelerate if we don’t take bold action now. These panelists shared how climate change is affecting them and the communities they represent, and how we can take collective action across different sectors to prevent its worst effects. Included on the panel were Dwayne Thomas, United Mineworkers of America, Southwestern PA and president of PA Association for Retired Americans; Heather Harr, project director of the PA League of Women Voters; Justine Russo, directors of Sustainability and Business Intelligence for PITT OHIO; and Rod Harris, deputy directory of the Allegheny County Health Department.
