The Yellowstone Democrat Club meet on Tuesday, January 17, 2017 at the Fortin Culinary Center. The program included speakers from The Danny Choriki from the YC Democracts about their website, Kari Kaiser from Big Sky Rising, and three speakers from the Billings chapter of The Citizen’s Climate Lobby.
Kathy Masis, Rob Byron and Lori Byron (all MDs) spoke to the group about the health consequences of the changing climate and the work being done by the The CItizens’ Climate Lobby (https://citizensclimatelobby.org/). The work of the CCL focuses on lobbying all the members of the US Congress, every year for a day in June. One measure of their success is that the members of congress who are explicit climate change deniers has drop over the three years of their work.
The local CCL meets on the third Thursday of every month at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 2021 Central Ave at 7pm. More information about them is at https://citizensclimatelobbybillings.org/.
