Olympic Climate Action is organizing support for a major new statewide campaign: Climate Countdown. With time fast running out to curtail the climate crisis there can be no excuses from the Washington State Legislature to undertake bold climate action now. It will ask two things of the legislature: ban new fossil fuel infrastructure (by passing Climate Test Legislation) and commit to rapid transition to 100% renewable energy (as has been done in Maryland recently). There is broad excitement for the possibility of significant action on climate in our state, however it is a short legislative session.
The legislature has just sixty days to get this done, the clock is ticking. To launch this campaign, there will be a major mobilization in Olympia on the opening day of the legislature–Monday, January 8. The OCA is filling carpools from the Olympic Peninsula, reserve your spot here. Please carve out this date if you can! For further information email Olympic Climate Action or visit the event facebook page.
Time: 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Location: WA State Capitol Building, Olympia, WA 98504
