Virtual Program: The Conservative Case for Smart Climate Action on Wed. Apr. 28 at 7pm. About 1/3 of all Americans either have some degree of skepticism regarding climate change as an issue or need more information on the subject. This presentation moves beyond scientific based arguments for taking action and refocuses on a compelling case for solutions that are both in-line with conservative principles and deliver desired outcomes that include: freedom of choice, quality of life, enhanced national security, and economic well-being. Throughout the presentation the audience is engaged in an interactive discussion providing feedback on shared values, approach, and whether the proposed solution meets a conservative “litmus test”.
