US Climate Action Network to Announce Plans for Climate Action at COP 23

NEW YORK – Leaders representing the US Climate Action Network (USCAN) will host a press call at 11am ET on October 31, 2017 to lay out their objectives at COP 23, the next round of UN climate negotiations taking place in Bonn, Germany from November 6-17. As the Trump administration signals America’s diminishing global leadership role on climate change, the intention to leave the Paris Agreement has inspired unprecedented action by leaders outside the federal government.

During the press call USCAN representatives will discuss how communities are organizing as climate change continues to hit many Americans where they live, from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria to California’s devastating wildfires. This year alone, these disasters cost the US hundreds of billions of dollars. The panelists will also discuss how the United States can still meet key climate goals.  Before the Clean Power Plan the country was already moving toward a cleaner energy economy. And last year solar jobs grew by 25 percent in 2016, wind employment jumped 32 percent. The call will include reporter Q&A. 

WHEN:  Tuesday, October 31, at 11 am ET

WHO:

    • Steve Herz, Senior International Policy Advisor, Sierra Club
    • Katherine Egland, Chair of the National Environmental and Climate Justice Committee, NAACP
    • Varshini Prakash, COP 23 Delegate, SustainUs
