Thurs 3/7 - Climate Change Solutions Discussion in Spooner

An Exploration of Climate Solutions
Thurs 3/7 @ 7:00PM
Spooner DNR Station (map)
(Facebook Event Link)

The vast quantity of carbon released into the atmosphere by the industrialization process of the last 100 years has increased the earth’s temperature with dramatic effects on our climate, environment, and wildlife.

This forum will present various government responses now in the spotlight to control manmade carbon production and limit further warming:
  • The Green New Deal
  • Carbon Fee & Dividend
  • Other mixes of policy & technology

Speakers will present the pros and cons of each and further discuss a robust blend of policy and technology.

Event sponsored by: Citizens Climate Lobby, Sierra Club - John Muir Chapter, and Wisconsin Conservation Voters. (Note this is not a DNR-sponsored event.)

Thurs 2/21 - Barron County Dems Meeting

Barron County Democrats Meeting
Thursday, 2/21 @ 7:00PM
16 W John St, Rice Lake (map)

WI Supreme Court Candidate Lisa Neubauer will be joining us and taking questions via video conference. (We had originally planned this for our January meeting, but Judge Neubauer had to re-schedule for Feb.)

The election on April 2nd will decide who replaces former Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson, and we need to elect Judge Neubauer to maintain the current make-up of 4 conservatives to 3 liberals on the Court. Then in April of 2020, we'll have a chance to swing the Court to a liberal majority and finally put ordinary Wisconsinites on equal footing with corporations.

Hope to see you there!
